What he said: No crystal ball here
My oldest son's response to my question about whether or not his friend (a 9 year old boy) should have known better about bringing a toy to our house that he didn't want to share with Camden, 5: "Mom, he can't see into the future. He (his friend) didn't know that was going to happen." Amazes me how simple and pure kids see things.
What happened was Camden (5) kept begging to play with this friend's new toy he brought to our house and the friend didn't want to share it. It was frustrating to hear him beg to play with it. But it wasn't my place to make anyone share. And the best I could offer was for the friend to go home with his toy. I did remind him that if he doesn't want to share something to please not bring it over.
