Cheeseburgers and Miracles

A while back I mentioned how Mad Dog and I were amazed at the substantial overall improvement of the boys’ behavior. This improvement is most notable when on public outings or surrounded by a large group.

We attended a neighborhood cookout and our friend and host commented that she noticed a dramatic difference in them as well.

For example, neither had to sit in time-out for anything.

Not one time.

I couldn’t believe it.

Neither tried to tackle, maim, bite or wreak generalized havoc on each other or the rest of the kids in attendance.

Mad Dog and I actually got to sit back, relax and engage in adult conversation.

All over cheeseburgers, good company and a lovely March evening.

I do believe in miracles.

A spring break outing to the zoo where the boys continued their miraculous good behavior. They had cheeseburgers for lunch, too. Maybe the magic is hidden in the ground beef?

    1. Let me clarify, there were no time outs used for this particular outing and that’s why it bordered on the miraculous. I don’t know if we are doing good work but we do love our kids and always have the best intentions. If you want to see how far we have come behavior wise, visit some of my early blog posts. Thanks for reading!

  1. Very cute post 🙂 They are growing up and making their mom and dad proud of their good behavior 🙂 awesome!
