This past Saturday Eric and I were working feverishly to get all our summer vegetation pulled up before it turned cold. Suzie was outside "helping" when she decided she wanted to make a rainbow with the hose. Never one to squelch any scientific curiousity I told she could as long as she pointed the hose away from where I was working. She just couldn't control herself and kept pointing the hose right where I was weeding. After many warnings she got sent to her room until she learned to listen. After about 20 minutes I went and checked on her and discussed how she needed to listen the first time and then let her out her room. Yesterday she showed me this note she had written in her diary while being squestered in her room:
I cannot fix my problem.
I cannot behave.
I'm stuck in my room.
I cannot get out.
When I showed it to Eric he said, "Well at least she is expressing her feelings." :)
