B was devastated. I told him we could carve another one before Halloween but it didn't console him. Next I asked him if he knew what the best thing to do with a moldy pumpkin was. He didn't know. I told him to smash it. Tears turn to smiles with a big "YEAH!" and a fist pump.
The first throw didn't smash it enough. He had to try again.
Oh, little boys are fun!
