This message might seem a little shady, but it isn't. It is just the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
When Aiden was a toddler, he would try to mock the way Anthony and I said "No." Well one day we asked him, "How does Grammie say "No"? He pondered for a moment and then said, "I don't know. Grammie doesn't say no." My husband and I thought this was funny and very true. Grammie may discipline you when you do "absolutely wrong...con't get out of it wrong....you were about to kill yourself wrong...are you trying to get my in trouble with your parents type of work.." BUT she doesn't necessarily tell you no.
So let's fast forward 3 years later.
Eve is misbehaving. My mother, Grammie, is fussing at her and told her to go to time out. I walk into the dining room and this is what I see. Eve is laying across my mother in the most COMFORTABLE time-out position known to man.
I guess Grammie doesn't do time-out either. (Shade, but no Shade.)
