Owen was naughty for the tenth time in about five minutes.
I sent him to time out.
He wore a smirk all the way to his time out spot.
After about 3 minutes he asked, “Am I done yet?”
I replied, “Are you ready to behave?”
To which he responds, “Um… Well, not yet. Maybe in 5 more minutes.”
Luckily he couldn’t see my smirk.
Another few minutes goes by and he tells me, “It has been 5 minutes. I’m ready to behave now. Sorry mom!”
Off he runs to play.
