Time Out



So James got sent to time out for the first time the other day. For us time out means you have to go and sit on the stairs for a little while, or if you're Avery sometimes it means you have to go to your room for a little quiet time/settle down time.

Anyway, the other day he pulled Avery's hair and bit her and so I made him go and sit on the stairs. He had been there for just a bit when I decided to go and check on him. For all I knew he escaped to upstairs or whatever. I turned the corner and found him on the stair I had left him and he had a really fierce pout going on! He had his little lip tucked in so tight and was looking down at the ground. I couldn't help it...I started to chuckle. And then I went and got the camera because I just needed to capture that moment. These pictures don't even quite do it justice. He is trying not to smile in them. But before that he just had such a down on his luck look on his face. I realize that first laughing, then taking pictures, isn't really conducive to an effective time out...but we'll just have to work on that the next time I guess.

Max is in time out quite a lot these days, he is always pulling hair, biting, throwing toys (with great precision) and just being mean.....I never thought a 2 year old could be such a bully! Good Luck!

Even though he's being so naughty, that face in timeout is priceless! I bet it's hard keeping a straight face....

lol We just started putting Abby in time out. It's not pretty. She is a monkey, though! She is really in to hitting these days. She's just so different than Emily was. Emily wasn't this naughty! ;)
