Timeout for monkey

Recently there has been a lot of fighting over this little monkey. Maddy was gracious enough to give Zeke most of what she considered her 'boy' stuffed animals (the brown ones like bears & monkeys), but she had a change of heart with this little guy. They had been fighting over 'Little George' (yes there is another bigger version of this guy w/o the hat) for quite a few days. One would wait until the other wasn't paying attention & would play capture the monkey out of the other's room. On this particular day, there was a tug o war going on over poor little George. I told the kids since he was causing them to fight so much that he had to go into to timeout. Problem solved!

Poor George.....We have done the same things with things they fight over and can't settle it.

What a creative way to solve the problem! I always knew you would be a GREAT mom.

Wow, I thought I was writing this post for a minute! :) I'm so glad George has now gone to time out and has solved this problem.

I sometimes put myself in "time out" to get away from the fights! : )
