Peyton learned this past week how to snap not one, but both sets of fingers. Instead of announcing his presence by the general loudness that is his mouth, now all you hear is just snap, snap, snap. Which, by the way, is a welcome change, although I'm sure we'll grow tired of it as well. He snaps all day long. Snap, snap, snap. (Snap looks and sounds really funny if you say it over and over. Go on, try it.) Snap, snap, snap. ha ha
On the other hand, we are implementing a new discipline plan tonight. Peyton has gotten pretty mouthy lately, the whole copycat thing and just generally being a pain in the rear. So, after work, I am going to the local Targe't and buying a timer. From here on out, he receives one warning, after that, the timer is set for 5 minutes and he goes to time out. While in time out, no one will speak with him and he will NOT be allowed to go to the bathroom, which strangely enough every time he goes to time out, he has the most urgent need to pee. Imagine that. Hopefully, this will force him to use the brain God gave him to think rather than act like he was raised in a barn. I'll let you know how it goes.
