There is nothing I love more than Tim and Max spending some quality time together. Well, I love to be there too, but it is sweet to have my boys grow closer one-on-one. I came home from running an errand one afternoon (by myself, hardly ever happens...thanks Tim!) to Tim and Max playing hard. While I was gone, Tim had been trying to put one of Max's trains away, but it somehow slipped from his hands, and ended up being thrown across the room. Max immediately said, "Daddio, time out!" (In Max's sweet little head, Daddy had just thrown the train across the room, which is a big no-no...) Tim, trying hard to look somber, went to time out. After a while, Max told him to go and show him what the 'no-no' was. Then in a demanding voice Max said, "Daddio (that is what Max calls Tim these days), pick up the train!"
Tim did as he was told. After that, Max said, " Daddio, say you're sorry." Again, Tim did as he was told. Max then came up to Tim with a big grin on his face and proudly said, "Thanks for minding!!"
