The Curtain Incident

I have no idea why, but for some reason the girls LOVE to pull, hang from and swing from the curtains in our house. A few days ago, we noticed that one of the brackets the curtains hang from was partly ripped from the drywall. Well, it’s on my giant list of things I need to do around the house, and I haven’t yet had the time to fix it properly. So, yesterday my beautiful princess comes into the living room, and this is what went down:

Daddy, I accidentally pulled the curtain down. Just a liiiiiiiitle bit. It’s okay daddy, it was an accident! I was just swinging off the bed with the curtain and it just went POP! It’s okay dad, it was just an accident, right dad?

My wife came home and asked why I didn’t discipline my daughter for this – but honestly after the way she told me the story, with her irresistible face, I just couldn’t bring myself to it. Plus was it big of deal? I had to fix it anyway.
