A few days ago my son accidently broke his favourite toy to the extent to which it cant be fixed, since than he is asking me to "Fix" his favourite toy. I am the one to be blamed for this, from day one i have been fixing or replacing his favourite things. The first time i fixed his toy to the day he told my sister with a gleam in his eye and the firmness of surety in his tone that 'mama will fix it', to that day, i have been fixing his broken toys. I was happy in my bubble that he looks at me as his 'super mama', who is there for him to make his world alright. I was happy that i am preparing him for the world by teaching him that broken things can be mended. There is always a way out. There is always something you can do. To stay hopeful. Until that day, when i realized what wrong i am doing. I told him, ' we cannot fix this' and he refused to believe. He refused this idea that his fav toy cannot come back to its perfect shape. He refused to believe in this biggest reality of life to let go, to accept the loss and to face it. I realized i am not preparing him, i need to stop fixing his world, its hard bt i have to do it. I have to prepare him to fight the odds, to know how to deal with the loss, how to be strong, to understand that "not everything that breaks can be fixed", to comprehend the fragility of things and to accept the facts. So i told him, you have to keep your favourite toy in the same broken way, because sometimes we cannot fix what is broken. He still dint get it but he will soon. I will prepare him for the real world. I am glad that, that toy, broke, i really am.
