It amazes me how easy children can brush things off like it's no big deal. Hubby or I fall and we can't walk for weeks without whining and taking ibuprofen. Littlest Picky, after seeing a "Wipe-out-like episode", runs straight into the doorwall and he cries for maybe three seconds (and hopefully will never ever EVER do that again).
What gives? HOW are kids so resilient?
I lose a necklace, a bra and a pair of jeans and I search EVERYWHERE. Under the bed, in the laundry, in drawers, behind the washing machine and I am so sad about my missing things. Middle Picky misplaces his brand-new DS case with four of his games within a week of receiving them, shrugs his shoulders and says, "Oh well. At least I have my 3DS and one game".
WHAT? Why can they just move on without these items driving them crazy or walk away injury-free?
Thankfully, our children can get up and move after falling down, with little to no injuries, but hopefully lessons will be learned (doubtful). And maybe I need to take away some of the attachment that goes along with my material possessions and adopt my children's nonchalance.
Ugh. I guess.
