Time Out

Helen put me in a Time Out this morning because she heard me say “Dammit.”

We don’t say “Time Out” around here… We say, “Do you need to sit down for a minute?” which usually causes a HUGE burst of tears.

So she told me to “Sit down a minute.” So I did. Then she said, “Cry.” So I did.

Realized that the newly double-gated stairs make a PERFECT place for Time Outs… She can be gated into a supremely boring area on the stairs when she Sits Down For A Minute. Also will make a fabulous temporary holding area for Collies, though it’s not nice to trap them on the stairs since they can’t really sit there comfortably.

  1. That’s awesome. Elyse showed me at age 4 that I had taught her the appropriate use of the word “asshole.” She said it meant somebody that makes you stop the car when you’re driving.
