when ian gets upset about something he often goes into his room for some alone time. we've never had to give him timeout because he always gives himself timeout! lately he's added making signs for his door to his routine of self isolation.
anyway, for some reason something made him upset this morning and he made the above sign for his door. when he came to show me and rupert we took the opportunity to warn him: well, if we can't go into your room you'll just have to put your clean laundry away, turn on your nightlight and open your drapes [both of which are up high so he can't reach], get your toys by yourself, and tuck yourself into bed at night.
after a moment of thought, off he went and came back with some changes ...
lucky us, we're now allowed to go in at night to do his bidding! and why does he always draw me larger than rupert?!
