It's the third to last day of school. Apparently Baby got in trouble at school. Again.
I hear the message on the answering machine the next morning. It sounds terrible. I'm surprised they didn't hunt me down. I'm expecting a court date.
Olaf hears the message and is quite upset too. We discuss punishment. Baby is grounded for the rest of the week. That makes him cry because it's the beginning of summer break!
Olaf goes in to the school and talks to the Principal. Turns out the situation wasn't as bad as it sounded on the phone.
We talked and decided to let Baby choose his punishment. He can either be grounded through the weekend OR he can pull everything out of his room, go through it and get rid of stuff and put some things other places, and finally put some stuff back in his room. But not all of it. Not anywhere near all of it!
Can you tell which punishment he chose? The Positive Punishment. So far he's been cheerful and willing. He actually likes cleaning his room out although we've never been this thorough before.
As you can see there isn't much left in his room. Tomorrow he gets to finish pulling everything out and commence making "Keep" "Throw Away" and "Move Somewhere Else" piles. And he has to have a place for everything before it goes back in his room.
We're both excited. Me because his room will be clean for a few days! Him because he thinks he'll be done right away after school and will be able to go play.
I don't think he realizes how much CRAP he has in his room and how much of it isn't going back in there.
The Next Day: Mission Almost Accomplished! Now to just get rid of the stuff that DIDN'T go back in the Room!
