A Different Kind of Time Out

Today, as we were working outside in the yard, my four year old had to go to time out for fighting with his older brothers.  I was in the front yard with no seat available, so I had him sit beside me on the driveway while I worked on removing some grass from the flower bed.  We have a strict “no toys in time-out” rule in the house, but I was at a loss when he found a tiny little snail crawling on the pavement to have as a pet.  When you have outside time-outs I guess you have phrases like the one that popped out of my mouth – “No snails in time-out!” 🙂
