Crimes and Misdemeanors
Today was a hard day because Vaughn's teacher sent us an email saying he had been misbehaving in class. She said that while he was a wonderful child whom she was confident could correct his behavior, lately he'd been disruptive and distracting. It's not really a huge surprise as he's been pretty mouthy at home lately. At any rate, he's been sentenced to one day without "screen time." He must have known he'd messed up pretty big because the rest of the evening he was very polite and easy to get along with. He did some painting and reminded me that he wanted to be an artist when he grew up which, I guess if you are going to be disruptive and anti-authoritarian is a as good a career choice as any. He drew this sketch of Jacob which, while very detailed and beautiful, seems to suggest his father lives in the ally and holds people up as his job.
In other bubble-shattering news today we discovered its been HANNAH and not Suki that has been crapping and peeing in the basement. Oh she did a good job covering her tracks alright, using the litter box just enough to throw us off the trail. And truth be told, it was pretty easy to believe that the one who pees and shits all over the house was also doing it in the basement.
