How to discipline is always a concern. We don't want to be too tough, but we have to set some boundaries. Lately, "time out" has been working well for Ian. We didn't know for sure if he understood or not. Today...we got our answer.

Charlie and Ian were playing basketball in the living room. Charlie shot the ball and it hit the table. I said "Daddy"...with an ever so slight mommy tone. Ian then took control. He said "don't throw my ball." Then he promptly walked over to his time out spot and said, ever so sternly......"TIME OUT DADDY....SIT DOWN."

That's MY Brother

I'm not sure that Ian understands totally what's going on, but he knows that the picture of Drew is his brother. He was so cute Friday evening when we showed the picture to him. He said "baby?"....and then "toes, momma....stinky feet"...then he giggled. Then we told him that was his baby brother in Vietnam and he said "that's my brother"...and kissed the picture. Throughout the weekend we'd show him the picture and he'd repeat..."that's my brother". We'd ask him where is baby brother was and he'd say "biet..nom". He thinks it's pretty cool right now, but just wait until he finds out he'll have to share his stuff with him.

These are the pictures we took when we first showed Drew's picture to Ian.
