A delicious meal

Mommy, I'm not hungry
Mommy, I'm NOT hungry

MOMMY, I'm NOT hungry

This was the little song Sarah sang to us tonight. If you imagine it in a four year old's voice, I bet you'll even be able to hear the music in your head.

Ben and Sarah got in BIG, GIGANTIC trouble tonight. It was blatant disobedience and complete disregard of a warning that if a dangerous and property destroying "game" was repeated, they would be in HUGE trouble.

One of the most effective punishments that I have found is a dinner of their least favorite foods and then a very early bedtime. So, after the trouble they were showered and told to sit on their beds to wait till they were called for dinner.

The culinary fare:
That's a peanut butter sandwich, pickled beets and green beans.

They probably would have preferred 50 lashes with a wet noodle over this punishment.

Fate worse then death to them, I tell you!

Ben saw his meal and took it like a man; he ate and headed for bed. Sarah saw her meal and began singing that catchy little ditty you just read. Her song ended with this:
They're so cute.... when they sleep!
