Oh Mickey

Ben's best friend is his Mickey Mouse doll. He carries Mickey with him everywhere which has been challenging when I have to explain that Mickey cannot go into Olive Garden with us. Mickey has actually been a great learning tool for Ben regarding rules and behavior. The other day Ben had Mickey standing on the table, which is of course a no-no in our house, so I told Ben to tell Mickey to sit down on the chair so he does not get hurt. Mickey decided not to obey. So then I tell Ben to tell Mickey to sit down or he will have to go to timeout. This time I go about my business in the kitchen only to turn around to see that Ben has put Mickey in timeout. He babbles some stern words to Mickey and then decides to join his poor pal in his punishment. While it was a very funny and precious moment, it was also a wonderful to know that timeouts are making some sense to Ben. I admit I have had my doubts. Since that day I have seen Mickey in timeout periodically -unfortunately I do not know what for, but I have definately seen some improvement in Mickey's behavior. :)
