One word- SUPERGLUE. Where would this world be without it? It is the fix-it to a lot of problems around here, like putting back together a glass ball ornament that has S4’s handprint on it from two years ago. It’s bad enough the computer crashed last year with most of the not-backed-up photos of the boys as babies on it. Now his ornament? S1 was getting a little excited filling her hands with ornaments to hang on the Christmas tree, and I reminded her for the fourth time that she can only hold one ornament at a time. So, she puts his ornament down ON THE PIANO. Sweet little homeschooled girl didn’t realize that a ball will roll off of a flat surface, especially when the surface is only three inches deep! I was furious, so I sent her and the other two girls to bed (the boys were already down for the night). I glued it back together. Fortunately, the paint from his handprint allowed the pieces to break in larger sizes. The opposite side was completely shattered. So I glued it back together with superglue in the hopes that I can just replicate it on a new ball. His hand was just so tiny! That ornament has to be recreated. Thank you, superglue.
