Sitka Gets In Trouble Again
Posted 26 January 2012 - 09:38 AM
I aired his little butt in the kitchen and asked him. Oh yeah, he confessed, and knew he had done something wrong. I told him "NO!" It is so easy to upset him, but come on, that is so against the rules!
So soon it was bed time, and I made him sleep on a pillow beside the bed. Oh, he was so upset. Eventually, he went around the other side to the softie, who let him up (we had a few words about spoiling him), and he curled very close to B, being careful not to touch me at all. He knew I was still not appeased.
Here's the interesting bit. After B went to sleep, as he does very quickly, Sitka hopped back down to the pillow on my side, and waited there; very sorry body language . After a respectable time, I called him up, and then he curled very close to me for the rest of the night.
Not sure if he thinks he got away with it, or not. Time will tell. But I did find it interesting the way he seemed to realize that he needed to square it with me. I thought about what Kim says, "Their tricky little minds", and there it was in action, and in all it's glory.

I know the 'tricky minds' game too. JJ tries to tell me "But mom, it's so Hard." to try to get out of doing things I know he knows how to do.. ornery little cuss.

(that being said, there is the sad truth that I - as I am the victim of Allison's implicit derision - will head to a pot of Mac and Cheese and show no remorse).

Anyways, we hadn't even gotten the meat off the bbq when we heard a holler from the back yard. We go out to see he's gotten a large piece off the grill, but then immediately shoved his face into his water bowl because he had burnt himself when he stole our food! We figured it was enough of a reprimand that he got hurt.
