Mayhem was sick, yesterday. Pointing finger aimed at a whole load of sugar over the holidays. We both decided that he would be better off going without sugar for a bit and seeing if that improved things for him.
Three guesses what Mayhem decided to do in the middle of the night?
He made the supremely "wise" decision to raid someone else's Erastide gift, and break it in the process. Without even bothering to ask if it was anyones.
WHILE THERE WAS AN ENTIRE FIRKIN BUCKET OF 'FOR GRABS' CHOCOLATE LITERALLY IN FRONT OF HIM!
His defense of grabbing the gift for himself - "I didn't know who it belonged to". His defense of leaving the 'for grabs' chocolate was identical. Just. WHY?
I'm understandably upset about this, especially since the Erastide gift in question was earmarked for MeMum. And irreplaceable until next firkin year. I'm vexed. I'm furious. I'm firkin pissed.
...and I really don't know how to handle this.
Mayhem really has a knack for helping himself without asking, and that is going to one day lead him into some mega mondo trouble. With housemates, with snugglebuddies, with friends, with... anyone he cohabits with, to be honest. Boy needs to watch himself because someone may object by breaking one of his bones.
Also - small shock that he's sick this morning. He's rang the school and made his appointment for the note and will be getting an intervention about making certain he sticks to his decisions.
Meanwhile, I have to get rattling on literally everything, including the Patreon stuff I couldn't get to yesterday.
