The ultimate punishment is sending them out of the house for as many minutes as they are years old. The older one never serves out his entire punishment - the brother unlatches the door and lets him in.
The other day, it was the younger one who got punished. I expected the older brother to open the door and let him in, but he continued eating his lunch as though nothing had happened.
My heart melted for my darling baby, who cares so much and gets so little in return.
Stubborn. Hot headed. Obstinate. Impetuous. Willful.
But above all, Compassionate.
