After picking up the girls from school Tuesday afternoon, there seemed to be more than the usual amount of sibling squabbling-at least more than what I'm used to.
I was somewhat exasperated so I told the girls I thought it might be a good idea if each of them had some quiet time in their rooms.
The following conversation then ensued:
Courtney: Why would you send me to my room? Shouldn't you send me someplace else? I love it in my room. That's no punishment. Geesh, Grampy.... on and on it went.
Brooke ended up playing quietly in her room for a while and Courtney and I inspected her captive insect which we're still trying to identify.
