You Go Time Out

Tornado S has a complete understanding of time-out.  Thanks to Tornado E.  Tornado S understand that when Tornado E is in trouble he has to go in time-out.  Tornado S uses this to his advantage.  When Tornado E is annoying Tornado S, Tornado S shouts, “GO TIME-OUT, BROTHER!”  It’s quite adorable as Tornado S points to the time-out chair.  Of course, Tornado S has seen his time in the chair too.

The Husband returned home late last night, and this morning he handed out toys to the boys for his absence.  He bought the boys a Batman and Joker.  They both took an instant liking to the Batman, but in the end, it was Tornado S who adopted Batman.  It wasn’t too long before Tornado S, playing alone with the Joker and Batman, that the Joker acted unsavory.

Tornado S: Mommy!  Mommy!  Joker hit Batman!

Me: What do you think should happen to the Joker?

Tornado S: You Go Time Out!

Tornado S then placed the toy on the chair and walked away.

I guess our experiment in crime and punishment may be working.

    My daughter does the same thing with #2s. She always rats out her dolls for the odorous offense. It’s never HER, though…

    Wait until he tries to put you in time out! Mine did it! I actually enjoyed those five minutes to myself! I even tried to convince them to give me a minute for every year of my age, but they didn’t fall for it!

    INRIS~ I know!
    ck~ Of course, it’s never there. Which is good in a way. Because if she just marched into time out, you know she did it knowing the punishment.
    suzicate~ Sean hasn’t tried. Evan has. Though I agree, self induced time-outs rock!

    This reminds me of the time my boys had every single stuffed animal they owned (every. single. one.) lined up in the playroom. I asked what was going on and my eldest said, “It’s been a very, very bad day.”

    Jane~ What was your response? “You have no idea.”?

  6. Jane Says:

    No, actually, I said, “I’m right there with ya'” – but your guess made me giggle!
