"Before children can reason, they should be taught to obey..."

Even though Skyler is nearly two, to his credit, he doesn't seem to have hit the terrible twos yet. He loves to obey--sometimes.

Take, for example, the other day when the three kids were in the bathtub. I heard Skyler squealing protests and came in to find Seth pouring water over him. "Hey, quit that!" I ordered. "Say, 'Sorry, Skyler!'"

"Sowy, Skyer," cheerfully repeated...Skyler.

Well, if it makes him feel better... I sometimes have to provide my own sympathy to myself, too!
