And there was great wailing at the Hodge Lodge today

My girls fought all morning with two of their friends.
I took away each of their favorite stuffed animals for 24 hours.
Now they are in "nap" time in two separate rooms.
One is crying hysterically, yelling "Pinky, I want Pinky!"
The other is crying softly, saying, "Not Heart! Why did you take away Heart?!"
I think the punishment is working.
But we'll see when they spend 2 1/2 days with those same friends, starting Sunday.
Pray people, pray.

Thanks Christine for being real! Jonathan is only 1 1/2 and cute and funny most of the time, but not always. :-)
It helps to read the adventures of a fellow mom and pray with you as we ride this crazy ride!

Yea... those are the hard times... I don't even really know how to dicipline sometimes... it takes creativity to find what works with different personalities...
