Emma's First Lecture

We've instituted a new rule around Chez Hatchet: if you touch mommy and daddy's laptop or mommy's plants, you immediately get taken to your room for a 2 minutes timeout.

Logan has needed constant reinforcement on this issue. He's seen the inside of his room more times than I can count between today and Friday (when we really started being hardcore about it). Emma, on the other hand, has been paying attention.

I know this because the last time I put Logan in his room and set the timer, Emma walked upstairs, opened the door and let him out.

I was going to go and put him back in when I heard what she was saying:

"Yogan, no touch computer! No computer. Yogan no touch. No computer, Yogan! You no touch computer. No."

I don't know how long she went on in that refrain, but it was long enough for me to have heard at least one repetition of her spiel. That girl! I love that little monkey!

And Yogan better start paying attention!

Oh I love it! Perhaps it is a girl thing? Derby has been OBSESSED about climbing on the coffee table. We tell him to get down and put his feet on the floor, if he doesn't listen then I say "Mama will you help you down" and take him off the table. The other night I was cooking when I heared Loen say "Derby feet on floor!" then proceeded to yank him off the table.

I'm constantly getting onto my 11 year old because he is always policing his 7 year old brother...... drives me crazy -- especially when he's right
