Last night, the boys asked me if they could take Astro for a walk. I was trying to get Ivan bathed and to bed so I told them sure. They were going to walk him down to the park that is a little ways beyond our house. So I start an organizing project while Ivan is in the bath. And I realize that, the boys are still gone. I get Ivan out, all jammied and smelling like watermelon, reading his books and put him to bed.
Hmmm...boys are still missing. I wait a little longer but it is getting really dark outside. The curfew in base housing is 6 and it is around 7:15. So I am starting to think maybe the guards picked them up or something. Harmony volunteered to go and find them. So I sent her out since Ivan wasn't alseep yet. Well she didn't come back,and she didn't come back. I figured that Ivan was asleep so I went out to find them.
Here was Harmony marching the boys down the street, yelling at them! She really got onto them. And so did I. The first rule in our house is that you can't go anywhere unless you have asked. However, last night they decided to take Astro for a walk and then just go play at the park. Connor kept crying," but Ethan made me!"
So they are grounded from just about everything. Harmony was loving having video games, the lap top all to herself. Rubbing it in their cute little faces that SHE wasn't grounded.
This afternoon, she asked if she could go to the park. I said sure. And being the amazing chef that I am, once the pizza was delivered, Connor went to the park to get her. He came home and said, " I can't find her." So I walk around the housing looking for her. I finally found her and she was coming to TELL me where she was. Wrong answer chica. You don't tell me, you ask. So I lectured her about exactly what happened last night. So now, Harmony is grounded also. They asked when they would be un-grounded and I said when they turn 18!
*I tried to get pictures of them frowing but Harm kept bursting into giggles...
