Today Maggie was in time-out a total of 5 times. Once for hitting Coleman. Once for kicking Will. Once for drawing on the toilet with crayon. Yes--the toilet. Once for throwing her lunch on the floor. And once for kicking Will. Again.
But the good news is: the teaching may have sunk in. Because tonight her prayer consisted of these words, "Heavenly Father, Please bless and I not hit Will-man and I not hit Will-man and I NOT hit Will-man, Amen."
Oh, please bless!
