OMG. Earlier this week I noticed a few of Brendan's Game Boy games in the bottom of his backpack. I thought this was weird, since he lost his Game Boy at a hotel back in May and he isn't getting it replaced until his birthday. I asked him why he had brought games in his backpack (thinking he was going to say that he was playing his games on the other kids' Game Boys on the bus- as he has sometimes done in the past). Unfortunately those were not the words that he said.
B: "So I can trade them."
Me: "Trade your games? Trade them for what?"
B: "Pokemon cards"
Me: "WHAT?! You traded Game Boy games for POKEMON CARDS?!"
B: "Yes. I don't have a Game Boy to play them on anyway."
Me: "Brendan! How many did you trade?! Where are the rest of your games? Please tell me you did not trade ALL of the rest of them?!"
B: "No. I don't know."
Me: "Tell me the truth"
Me: "How many- how many games are gone?"
Me: "SIX?! How many Pokemon cards did you trade them for?"
OMG! I was so mad. I tried to explain to him that six Game Boy Games cost around $100, while four Pokemon cards cost about $1.00 and very sternly told him he is NOT to trade Game Boy Games or anything else for Pokemon cards. And I told him he needs to return the Pokemon cards and ask the boy for his games back. I just hope the boy will be a good person about this and do it. So far he has "forgotten" to bring them back to Brendan the last 2 days. *sigh*
And I thought what Brendan did was pretty bad...until I found out what Adam did this morning. Apparently sometime after I left for work this morning, Adam got a hold of one of Brendan's crystal rocks, and threw it at Brendan. Only, Brendan moved, so he missed. And the crystal rock hit the glass panel window by the glass door instead. Shattered into a million little pieces. This is no small window, this is a window panel about 5 ft tall! The entire thing is completely shattered. The pictures don't really do it justice, but here's an idea of the damage:
