Grounded



This is the  short version of what happened to me yesterday.
Um Mom, you are not supposed to be eating cookies. MOM, SUGAR!!!
Fine then, put down the phone because you just lost Facebook for 2 hours...no 2 days.
They lose TV and Internet as punishment so in reality this is fitting.
I posted my farewell on my wall and explained to my friends that I lost my FB privileges for 2 days. See you on Friday.
I, of course, wanted to take my punishment as the kids would so after tucking them into bed I stomped down the stairs yelling It isn't fair. I am bored. Great, I hope you are happy because I have NOTHING to do now. Their reply was Oh Well and I don't want to hear it. Followed of course by Goodnight, God bless you,  I love you.
I couldn't have made up a more perfect role reversal.
I even deleted the app from my phone with Ava so she knows I am taking my punishment seriously.
You got to live by the rules you want them to follow.
