(This story was relayed to me by phone after Tim dropped the kids off. Note that BB has the next two days of school off.)
This morning, Big Brother was being pokey when it was time to get dressed for school. (This is usually the case.) Tim was pretending to be mad, then started to get mad.
“C’mon BB, you need to get dressed. I’m only pretending to be mad now but I’m going to really get mad soon.”
“I’m glad you’re not going to be home with us tomorrow, so you can’t get mad at me!”
“Oh, you think Mom won’t get mad if you misbehave?”
“No, but her punishments are relaxing!”
Apparently he enjoys spending time in his room a little more than I realized. (But why wouldn’t he, with so many toys and books in there?) I told BB that next time, he was going to have to do some cleaning for his punishment. He wasn’t terribly thrilled with that idea! Hopefully he’ll be on his best behavior this long weekend.
