I mentioned in another blog that we are using the naughty stool for Jacob. He's really pretty good; he only has to sit on it every couple of days. Last night he and Brian were playing with Mr. Bananas, this stuffed monkey that Jacob has. Jacob loves this little monkey! I don't know how it started, but I sat down to feed Andrew, and Jacob and Brian were putting Mr. Bananas on the naughty stool. Brian set the timer for 2 minutes, and they sat on the stairs to wait for Mr. Bananas. Then when time was up, Jacob went to the stool, picked up the monkey and made him apologize, and then topped it off with a hug and kiss. I don't know how many times they did it before I started watching, but they did this another 4 or 5 times after I sat down. Jacob would take Mr. Bananas off of the stool, take a few steps towards the living room, and make Mr. Bananas hit his head. Then he'd tell him "Nanas nonny stoo hit kakob 2 mimits." A few times he wanted to get him off of the stool early, but Brian made him wait the full 2 minutes.
So I've been going back and forth in my mind if this is a good game to let Jacob play. One side of me says that we shouldn't do it. The other side of me says that he is practicing and understanding the concept of the naughty stool, so it's not really a big deal.
In other news, he woke up this morning talking about Andrew pooping everywhere; Daddy put on gloves; the gloves were stinky. That little incident made quite the impression on him!
