Me: “OK, guys, we’re going to try something new. I think you guys are big enough to clean your own messes, so Bennett, because you flung your yogurt on the floor, I’m going to give you a paper towel, and you’re going to wipe it up yourself.”
Sutton: “I want a paper towel!”
Me: “No, you don’t understand. It’s a punishment. Bennett made a mess, so he has to clean the floor.”
Sutton: “I want to clean the floor!”
Sutton: “I WANT TO CLEAN THE FLOOR!”
Me: “Um… well, can you say please?”
Sutton: “Please have paper towel and clean floor?”
Me: “OK, nice job.”
Me: “Wow, you’re even going to throw the paper towel away? What a good girl! Bennett, can you say thank you to your sister?”
Bennett: “Paper towel!”
Me: “Yes, you can still have your paper towel, too.”
Me: “Remember, guys. Don’t throw food on the floor, or you’re going to get punished!”
great job Jerry, send Sutton here if she wants to do more cleaning! 🙂
This was too funny Jerry.
This made me laugh out loud! So cute!
take advantage of that! I’m sure that twins are capable of double the mess!
You got that right. When one of them throws food on the floor, it’s a safe bet the other one will, too – especially if the first one gets in trouble for it.
Linked here after reading your take on Modern Family on AfterElton. This post made my day! Hilarious.
aww so cute!
