Accidents Will Happen!
“Buzz, buzz, buzz”, went the busy bees in the flowers. Bobby ran up to them and tried to catch one.
“Don’t do that!” cried out Mummy who was carrying a bunch of pretty flowers, “You will be stung! It will hurt you!”
Bobby pulled back his hand, “Sore” he said.
“That’s right”, Mummy said, “Keep away from the busy bees!”
So Bobby learned that it is best to keep right away from things that hurt. They walked back to the house and went inside.
Bobby’s little sister Betty came running out of her room.
She saw the flowers that Mummy was carrying and said, “Pretty flowers! Give me some!”
“What do you say when you want something?”, asked Mummy.
Betty’s lip began to drop. “I want them!” she said stamping her foot.
“Betty”, said Mummy sternly, “What do you say if you want something?”
Betty stopped and thought for a minute.
“Please”, she said, “Can I have some flowers please, Mummy”. Mummy smiled,
“That’s right”, she said, “ Of course you can have some flowers, Betty,” and gave her some.
There is always a right way and a wrong way to ask for things, and Betty tried them both. Mummy was pleased when she asked in the right way.
Betty ran off to the kitchen with her flowers and tried to reach for a jar to put them in. Bobby ran after her. He reached up into the cupboard and got a jar down.
“Here you are Betty,” he said.
He put some water out of the tap into the jar and gave it to her. She put it on the floor and started to put the flowers in it. Bobby put some in too, but Betty pushed him away.
“No”, she cried, “Go away! I can do it by myself!”
Bobby started to bellow, and Mummy came into the room.
“Betty”, she said, “Let Bobby help. He is only trying to be kind to you. You must share your flowers with him. It’s the right thing to do”.
It is not always easy to share, but it made Mummy happy to see Betty and Bobby putting the flowers in together.
“Betty”, Mummy said, ”I think you had better pick that jar of flowers up and put it on the table. You might knock it over if it stays on the floor”.
Bobby jumped up and accidentally knocked it over. Water went all over the floor everywhere.
“See what I mean?” Mummy asked.
Betty started crying and pushed Bobby away.
“Naughty boy!” she said, “You are a mean naughty boy!”
Bobby gave her a swipe but missed, and Betty roared all the more.
“Now, now,” said Mummy, “ We all make mistakes. Betty, stop that noise. Bobby didn’t mean to do it. Accidents will happen. Next time it might be you! Bobby you mustn’t hit your little sister”.
Both Bobby and Betty learned that day that anyone can have an accident. An accident can’t be helped.
Mummy wiped the mess up and put the flowers up on the table out of the way.
“Now I want you to go outside and play while I get lunch ready”, Mummy said.
So Betty and Bobby went outside into the garden and played there happily until Mummy called them in to have their lunch.
