Mom and Dad I'm In Time Out

Dear Mom and Dad,
I want to apogize for spending any of our precious time together at that dreadful movie.

"An apology is the superglue of life. It can repair just about anything."

A time-out involves temporarily separating a child from an environment where inappropriate behavior has occurred, and is intended to give an over-excited child time to calm down. It is an educational and parenting technique recommended by some pediatricians and developmental psychologists as an effective form of child discipline. It involves temporarily removing a child from an environment where inappropriate behavior has occurred, thereby discouraging such behavior. Often a corner (hence the common term corner time) or a similar space where the child is to stand or sit during time-outs is designated.

I loved this post. I loved the apology followed by the definitions. Very funny. I laughed out loud.

Don't be too hard on yourself. You didn't know what was coming. But I did love this post, especially the picture with the poor child wearing a dunce cap .
Hilarious. Oh well. Next time we should all go and see one of MY movies! Then you won't have to worry about content. You'll only have to worry about everyone being bored.
