when I have a lot of patience. I don't remember why how the goldfish ended up on the floor, but I asked him to help clean them up. He got the idea that it would be fun to crunch all of them under a car. So instead of getting irritated that he was making a bigger mess, because I happen to have patience on this particular day, I let him continue until he crushed them all. Then I got him the broom and dustpan. If there were another picture in this series it would be of me sweeping and vacuuming. I knew that was how this activity was going to end but I still made the decision let him continue. These are the good parenting days.
