Time Out

We've been trying out "Time Out" the last two days. Do I think it's working? I have no idea. I'm going to continue to do it though. Lucas still wants to turn the tv on and off and Ethan has started pulling my hair. So I kind of smack at their hand, say no we don't ____ and then put them in the pack n play in the other room for a minute or two. Then when I get them out, I again say what it is that they're not supposed to do and when I bring them back to the living room, give them a toy that they can play with and tell them that. Hopefully they'll catch on soon. We'll see.

Thankfully Lucas hasn't bitten anyone lately. He does have two new teeth that just broke through overnight. Now he has 8 teeth. Such a growin boy!

I've been trying the time-out thing too and have no clue if it's working. I'm assuming it isn't because they go back to doing what ended them up in the chair in the first place. Good luck :) I like the idea of the pack n play time out. I have a chair, but it's nearly impossible to get them to remain seated for more than 30 seconds!
