Time Out

Last night I was in Aiden's room putting away his clean laundry. Todd brings Aiden in his room for a time out and leaves, locking the door. Here's how our conversation went.

Me: Aiden, why are you in quiet time?
Aiden: Because daddy put me in quiet time.
Not the answer I was looking for. Aiden then gets a confused look on his face.
Aiden: Mommy, why are YOU in quiet time?
Me: Honey, I was just in here putting your laundry away.
Aiden: Oh.
I then go to the door planning on going to put away everyone else's laundry, only to find the door locked. (we had turned the knobs around to lock from the outside)
So I yell for Todd a few times.
Aiden: Mommy, don't yell at daddy.
Me: I'm not yelling AT him, I'm trying to get him to hear me so he can let me out.
Aiden: Oh.
Todd finally hears me or realizes what he did. He unlocks the door to find Aiden and I standing there looking up at him.
Me: Can we get out of quiet time now daddy?

(Come to think of it, I never did find out why Aiden was put in quiet time. I can definitely come up with some good guesses though!)

I love these stories...though quiet time for mom's might not include laundry OR hanging out with ANY children

Cute story ....although I would prefer to be locked in with NO children....I am sure Todd had good reasons for Aiden's quiet time

Wow you turned the door around so you could lock him in? That is a GOOD idea! Plus it keeps him from locking you OUT, either accidentally or on purpose! So, did you EVER figure out what he was in there for?
