ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH!!!


We're not sure what it was, but the Boyz awoke today with fire in their eyes. From the first moment they were up they were at each others throats. One would be complaining while the other was crying. This went on for a good 4 hours. After several warnings, we had had enough. I rarely do this, but I placed each of their noses against the wall. As you can see, Jake had the better view. I told them I didn't want to hear another peep until they were ready to be nice to each other and settle down. I didn't get an after picture, but when I told them they were done, they gave each other a hug and acted as if nothing had happened. OH SWEET SPRING! . . . please come soon so we can get these kids out of the house!

That's a great way to handle it.It made me smile as I thought back to our kids. Sometimes they still need it! It was the dreaded piano bench they both had to sit on. Some (Katie) sat on it longer than others. We are ready for Spring too!

That is the reason why boys are so great! They are much more forgiving than girls. (or at least that is what I have been told) :)

That totally cracks me up! My mom punished us as kids in that exact same way! At least you didn't have to turn to violence!:)

I love boys. They're simple and straight forward. They can fight and then be best friends. Boys don't hold grudges like girls, but boy can they fight...just wait. I'm sure Brenda could tell you stories. Yep, I love boys.
