Ariel had found a green marker. It is also all over the side of the couch.
We were just at the doctor and she said at this age (18 months) a time out was appropriate. I didn't think we would have to do a time out for awhile because Ariel is a pretty good listener. Well, it turns out that we had to to a time out way earlier than I had planned. I didn't know how to go about it with such a little one. I put a little stool in the hallway and told Ariel that she was going to have a time out. She burst into tears and walked (by herself) over to the stool I set out. Annabelle and I went in the other room for a few seconds and then I told her she could be done. After talking about what she did she went back to time out.
I did end up taking her picture in time out. I wasn't sure if that would make it not as effective, but Annabelle told Ariel she had to take a time out when she wouldn't get off the table. She burst into tears and went over to the stool. James and I tried to tell her she didn't have to be in time out, but I guess she thought Annabelle is a boss too.
Both girls wanted to try time out together.
The scarf on Annabelle's head is her Rapunzel hair.
