Boom Boom does timeout

I've been thinking for a couple weeks now that Maggie is probably ready for timeout.  She's getting a little sass in her pants, and I prefer to nip that kind of thing in the bud.  I'd asked her a couple times if she needed to go to timeout, and both times Amos yelled, "No, my timeout!"  Awesome, he's even possessive over timeout.  On this day, however, Maggie was in trouble for stealing one of Amos' trucks, and he was more than willing to share timeout (not the truck).


So, Maggie went to timeout.  She was absolutely heartbroken.  I've never seen her so sad.  She did really good though and got herself calmed down.  Everything was fine until Eric walked through the door and then Maggie was done with timeout.  So far, she hasn't needed to go back.


Look at that face!  Breaks your heart...not mine, but yours.

Aww, her little face is so cute, even with tears! And I loved your phrase "sass in her pants." :)
