My Children have lost their minds...


They're so funny. They're all over the place all day long. Two year olds can be so much fun. They can also be turn in about a second. Today Marcus and Eli had the following conversation.

Eli: baba (bottle)

Marcus: No how about your cup

Eli: NOOOOOOooooooooooooo (in a really high whiny voice). Baba

Marcus: No how about your cup

Eli: NOOOOOOOooooooooooooooo, baba

repeat, repeat. At one point I echoed Eli's whiny no for him. Eli thought this was hilarious, apparently me saying NOOOOOOOOOoooooooo is funny, but we're suppose to respond to his plea for a bottle.

Dinner was also a nightmare tonight. For some reason Emerson decided she should play with all her food. Yogurt ended up on the wall and Emerson ended up needing a quick timeout.

Speaking of timeouts, what kind of "punishment" techniques do others use with their toddlers. Right now we've been sitting them in the corner for a few minutes after they do something they know they're not suppose to do. This make Emerson sad, Eli could care less *sigh*

I feel like discipline and punishment is something I'm constantly floundering with. I'm scared to death of having one of those teenagers that no one wants to be round.

Those pictures are super cute!
