Seriously, it's like a three-ring circus around here most times, with each kiddo leading a ring. It can be utter chaos and so there comes a time (sometimes frequently) when the kids have to be in Time Out. Carson, my youngest at five, is the best about going to time out - he always has been. He'll go and sit and do his time and you hardly hear from him. So, um...sometimes we'll forget for a minute that he's there. (Yeah, I know!) So then we'll hear:
"Daddy? Mama? Can I get up?"
Well this happened just a few minutes ago. So C's Dad responds with a sassy "Sure! If you say I'm the greatest!"
(two second pause)
C: "I'm the GREATEST!"
and off he runs. Yep, that'll teach him.
