This morning, I was switching a load of laundry when I heard Fisher start to cry. When I ran into the living room, Fisher was on his back in the middle of the room crying, and Barrett was already in the corner.
(Is it wrong that I think he looks so cute standing in the corner?)
When I asked Barrett why he was in time out, he said, "Fisher is crying."
I asked him if he pushed his brother, and he said, "No, Fisher fell over."
I had to explain to him that he only had to go to time out when he hurt his brother not when his brother hurt himself.
Later on, Fisher fell over trying to stand up on the couch, and Barrett said, "I don't go to time out. Fisher fell all by himself."
How long do you think it will take Barrett to figure out that he could claim he didn't do it when he actually did?<>
