I know this really isn't a big deal, but it bothers me. easy child was being a dumb kid and messed with something of mine and ruined it. He didn't break it, but one wrong move and it will break. I don't get attached to 'things', but this was very special to me and I haven't had it long at all. And he's 16 years old, for crying out loud. Too old for this stuff. Now, he told me about it; he didn't try to hide it. I asked him why he did it, told him that it was special to me and that I was upset. But, I didn't say anything else because he's leaving today for Georgia for a week and he always gets very anxious about going. I'm just soooo tired of my things getting ruined. Or doing without. It's not the doing without that bothers me, but like I bought myself a new pair of slippers and difficult child really liked them so I gave them to her and took her old pair. That kinda thing. And you know what, I don't go into their stuff and mess with it. This was my special thing. And it's ruined. If he hadn't told me about it before I found out, I wouldn't even question making him replace it. But, since he was up front about it, I'm not sure if I should make him replace it or if I should just replace it myself. Thoughts?
