When Logical Consequences Rain Down From the Heavens

Two neurotypical children are hailed from the Wii to put away their laundry.

Two neurotypical children are back downstairs on the Wii unnaturally quickly.

One neurotypical child should be, because she is too young for an allowance so only has to put away underwear and pajamas. The other has been taking seven shirts down every morning and lining them up on the floor to choose one and not putting the rest back.

The neurotypical mom yells down the stairs, "if I find out anyone's laundry isn't done correctly, that little girl will lose the Wii this week."

Seven-Shirt-a-Day Neurotypical child shouts, "it's done correctly!"

This morning, the neurotypical mom opened the girls' closet and went, hmm.

Tomorrow is going to be a snow day.



  1. Now I'm ROTF! That couldn't have worked out better if you'd planned it. :)

    Your email....great one!

  2. omg, I live in fear of the snow day. We have not had one yet..... but we will, I know we will. Lucky thing your daughter will have something to keep busy with since she will not have her wii!

  3. Great lessons!! Way to stand your ground and teach consequences.
