“Mommy, can you fix this?” I suspect like most households with toddlers, toys get broken here on a regular basis. If a toy needs more than duct tape, super glue, or new batteries, it’s beyond me, and my standard reply is, “Let’s ask Daddy to look at it.”
My husband, Mike, can fix just about anything. “Broken” doesn’t mean the same thing in this house. “Broken” is an opportunity to take something apart to see how it works and put it back together again, stronger than ever. Mike is teaching Tyler (4) and Austin (2) that with time and attention, just about anything that’s broken can be fixed. And what a wonderful gift that is!
