POST FROM JULY 2013 PHOTOS UPDATED APRIL 2017

So, I grew up in a house with two older brothers. They were five and eight years older than me respectively, which you would think would eliminate all my experiences of sibling . . . hatred.

Wrong.

I remember telling my mom as an adult that the first year I was old enough to “give” Christmas gifts (i.e. color on scraps of paper and wrap them up with other scraps of paper), my brothers told me that they knew what I was giving them because they had installed a camera in my light fixture. Her response was, “Those Jerks! I’ll kill ’em.”

I’m pretty sure she was just trying to humor me.

The reason I think she was just humoring me? My mom was an expert at sibling negotiations. The secret to her success? Four little words.

Everyone gets in trouble.

So when I went screaming to her telling her that Dan hit me, we both got time outs.

When Dan came and told her that  . . . okay, Dan didn’t so much do the tattling . . .

You get the picture though. Time outs. Time outs. Time outs. My parents even had matching time out chairs. These two HUGE arm chairs upholstered in the scratchiest ugliest green plaid fabric. To this day, I’m not entirely convinced that when they were decorating their home they didn’t pick them with their horrifyingly painful fabric expressly for the purpose of torturing children who had moments earlier been torturing each other.

Little did I know was that during those horrible sessions of time outs in those awful chairs, my mom was carefully and often adding minutes to the timers so that she could have a few more moments of peace while my brothers and I were in time out.

Should we review what we’ve learned?

They both get time outs because tattlers don’t win.

And ADD MINUTES!

So yesterday when my children nearly murdered each other over a dollar store kaleidoscope, naturally the only real solution was for them to both lose it.

My kids are so used to getting time outs that yesterday Quinn put the Pillsbury Dough Boy in a time out. (He’s stuffed, he giggles, and he smells like cake. He’s pretty much the best BlogHer swag ever.)  Gavin said that it was because he threw a book . . . and tried to eat the toilet. That hardly seems like the Dough Boy. Don’t worry though! Word on the street is that he can get out of tricky situations with his giggle.

This recipe is super simple. And even better, it combines the irresistible flavors of chocolate and peanut butter! If you ever need something easy to make for a group, this is the way to go!
