The Enforcer

Henry: Mama, if you do that again, that's it. I'm gonna whip your butt, put you in the corner, and set your timer. And don't even THINK about getting up before your timer dings. D'you know why? Because I'll get the extra carseat and strap you into it in the corner. You got it?!

Me: (Almost choking because I'm laughing so hard) Henry, what did I do to get into trouble?

Henry: YOU DON'T EBEN KNOW?!

Me: How long will I be in the corner?

Henry: A bery, bery, bery long time. 27 weeks. And I don't eben care if you have to go potty real bad while you're in there. You have to hold it.

Me: But Henry. . .

Henry: NO BUTS! Get in the corner!

Ah. . . so he does listen to me. . . And yes, I've been known to strap a child into a spare carseat in the corner to enforce the time-out for an escapee. Don't judge me.

Hell I won't judge you. I'm just pissed that I didn't think of that when my girls were little and kept running from the corner. Man, you've got it going on! :)
