day 12

You know what sucks? Lego-branded children’s TV shows. I love Lego, and it has given countless hours of joy to every member of this family including me, but the TV shows are objectively the worst thing ever.

However.

This morning I sat George down and said, calmly but firmly, that if he screamed at preschool drop off he would not be getting any of his treasured midday the-other-kids-are-napping screen time. We discussed it until he clearly understood the potential consequences of his bullshit.

And he did it! Pouted a bit, needed five hugs (one-two-three-four-five), but no tears! No screaming!

(The teacher told me at pickup time that he did yell a bit when there wasn’t enough snack for a second helping. Whatever, he was probably starving from all that behaving.)

And so here we are – I’m getting today’s blog post in and sitting with him while he watches Lego: Ninjago, which isn’t Caillou-level bad but is still pretty damn terrible, really.

  1. But you kind of win this round, no? 😀

    I like the Lego Star Wars stuff. It is funny.

    My kids never got into the Ninjago thing. Whew!

    There goes day 12!

  2. Whatever works! (Except I too would draw the line at Caillou, that whiny little jerk.)

  3. Oh yes, Lego Ninjago. There was a brief moment in time when Jake liked that – but it passed, whew.
