In time out 10-26-10

Just like any family, we have rules. 

1. No back-talk

2. No hitting

3. Listen to mommy and daddy

I would say those are our Big Three.  And when they don’t adhere to those rules, they get a time-out.

Well, in our house we have banned words or phrases.  They would fall under rule #1.  A few of them are:



intentional potty talk (poo poo, pee pee, butt..etc)

But Munchkin has a hard time with pronunciations.  So her variation of shut-up is “shove-up.”

So we had to ban “shove-up” as well. 

Can I tell you how darn difficult it is to stifle my laughter and restrain myself from squeezing her?  It’s just so cute.  I can’t handle it.

But I have to.  Diva watches me.  She rules with iron fist.   And when she tattles, “Mommy she said SHOVE-UP!”  I just can’t help but laugh.

Oh wow, shove up cracks me up. I would have such a hard time not encouraging that :)

P.S. Best book recommendation in the entire world-I read it yesterday, and it already completely changed the way I handled my kids today. Thanks!
