When I picked up Marley from my mom's house, Marley noticed the damage immediately.
"UH-OH MOMMY, UH-OH!" she said, pointing to the broken taillight. "Mommy, you BROKE THE CAR." She looked up at me, her eyes wide in amazement. "It's BROKEN."
I smiled sheepishly. "It's true, Marley," I said. "Mommy broke the car. But it was an accident."
Marley thought about this for a second. Then she shrugged, smiled, and broke into song...a lovely little diddy called "Accidents Happen" from Elmo's Potty Time DVD.
"Accidents happen, yes they doooo...accidents happen, to me and you....accidents happen, and that's Okay! See, it's okay Momma!"
Now, if only my husband would give me the same reaction when he sees the car...
