So fast forward to today. I drop the boys off in their rooms. then I get down the hall in time to hear Alex screaming (mad) and decide to head back down to his room. Long story short. They were trying time out and of course he was giving the response you might expect. Anger. Read here: NOT BROKENNESS. Which is why time out does NOT work in this instance with a two year old. But for nursery workers with no other option.. I completely understand. So when I got to the door they told me what the problem was and then she asked what I wanted to do, time out or bathroom. I voted bathroom. So then we went to bathroom had our event (explanation, spank, prayer) and then came back out in the room. He walked over and then yelled when another child came near "his" trains. So right back in the bathroom we went for round 2. He was sad and still upset when I left.
So... when I came back from Bible study (I did notice they never came and got me again) one of the teachers was gleaming when she said "Oh Alex did wonderful. We never had another problem after you left." I was so happy to hear that. Then we joked that maybe I should just do that as soon as I drop him off. But seriously.. Alex has had a rough few weeks. But as I was telling the women at the church.. PRAY. Please pray. God is so good and if I will just stay focused and know that diligence will pay off we will get through this.. me and my sweet blue eyed two year old.
