My youngest son Liam turned five last week. As the baby in the family, he has gotten away with bad behavior for longer than anyone else. My fault, I have to admit he is my LAST baby.
So, I have been going all Tiger Mom meets Super Nanny on him recently, to get him to stop his anti-social behavior. He is often sent to his room to ponder the error of his ways, and calm his red hair down.
Often, he emerges with a note he has written as a peace offering.
And this is my favorite one so far.
Scroll down to the bottom of the note, where I have translated it from Liam-speak into a human-readable form.
I need to remember not to kick, punch or hit my brothers. Especially, don’t say swear words. This will all help to maintain the love in our family.
Well, he is getting the message, but obviously, I need to work with him on his spelling, letter formation, grammar and general neatness. Some lined paper wouldn’t hurt either.
Damn, I Luve that kid so much.
