Before you read this post, I need to let you know that I'm a lucky Mom. I have 3 healthy children and nothing to really complain about. Working everyday with children who have multiple handicaps makes me very grateful that my own children are happy, healthy and strong. They can all walk, run and write (even though 2 of them are rather sloppy with the pencil).
I need to thank my 2 boys for this new light by our front door. I really appreciate their thoughtfulness. Their Dad installed it for me yesterday.
It doesn't match the lights on the garage.
This is one of the lights on the garage....
This is how the lights on the garage really should look....
Did you notice that the globe was missing from the first garage light? Somehow the globe was broken. We found glass shards in the landscaping awhile back. Hmmm....no one bothered to tell Mom or Dad that a light was broken. Here's what we decided to do. Since we had 3 matching lights, we would move the one from the front door over to the garage and just buy 1 new light(the one in the first picture is the new one). Sure, the lights wouldn't match, but I'm thinking that it won't be long before another one is broken and we'll have to replace it anyway.
My husband comes in yesterday laughing a little and tells me that as he's moving the one from the porch to the garage to put it up and replace the broken one, he DROPPED it and it broke!!!! So much for my grand plan.
This is how I think the first light was broken....
There was a little finger pointing going on when we questioned them about the broken light. Sounded like the month before when a front window was broken. (playing baseball in the house when Mom and Dad aren't home isn't recommended! Even if you use a paper ball and a miniature wooden bat, the bat can turn into a projectile and sail right through glass and land in the bushes out front.)
I am so thankful to have these healthy, active boys!
