Never turn your back or how to make you stint in "time out" worse.

Ruby is quick. For example, if you want a picture and she isn't interested...forget it. As a parent watching two children, sometimes you have to take your eyes off them. You turn around for the other or you get wrapped up in, cleaning, etc. Other times you put them in their room in "time out" and walk a away for a split second and the results are disastrous.
olivia said there was crying, a thump and then silence. She ran in to check on Ru and this is what we found. Curtains...out of the wall. We've had to get onto her for pulling on them before. Sometimes the lesson learned from an incident is for you, not your child. We learned that she is still so young that we can never turn our backs for even the briefest moment. Though drywall repair was not on my list of things to do this week, I am thankful that it is powder and paint that was damaged and not skin and bone.

                     I have also learned the lesson of restraint...I didn't swear once.

  1. Proud of you my friend. Most folks would have caught the curtains on fire with the language ;-) I guess you need shorter curtains ;-)
