We had a fly in the house this morning and it was driving Sara nuts...not for reasons you would think!
"Stay, fly. Mama, the fly isn't listening to me."
Really? Does he need a time-out?
"Yes. Fly, go sit over there in time-out. Don't move. Do you understand?"
"I put him in time-out. He's not listening. That frustrates me. He's old so I don't know why he's not listening. He should understand."
She proceeded to have a 10 minute conversation with the fly about how she was frustrated by his not listening and he needed to stay in time out, continuing to ask him if he understood.
I have no clue where she is getting any of these ideas! I guess I need to tell her the fly can only stay in time-out 1 minute for every year of his age!
