Let's Pause for a Moment of Silas

Well-worn is the path between Silas and...

The time-out chair.

He sits right down (sometimes with help) and makes himself comfortable.

He'll start crying, "Sorry, Mama! Sorry, Mama!"

I ignore it.

Then he moves on to, "Sorry, Daddy! Sorry, Daddy!"
(Even though Daddy usually isn't even here.)

Again - he gets nothing.

In a final, desperate plea, he shouts, "Sorry, People! Sorry, People!"

Then he just gets mad.

Then he gets stinking cute.

Incidentally, how are you feeling about the effectiveness of photographing your kid's cuteness whilst in time-out?


Yeah, I'm feeling pretty good about it, too.
