Jerry and I got to go on a date yesterday, including a movie with popcorn in a bucket. We brought said bucket home with us, because it was so huge that we didn't eat all of the popcorn. W decided it is the best toy ever. It will probably occupy that status for at least a week. That is, if G doesn't do an intentional nose-dive onto it, smashing it flat. These scenarios are equally plausible. So W likes to wear this bucket on his head and then put it on our heads to see our reactions, "I can't see!!!". This cracks him up.
Speaking of laughter - apparently we're so unfortunate as to have two toddlers who aren't phased by a stern, serious-sounding "NO". In fact, rather than be reduced to tears, they laugh. Yes, they somehow think it's a game. So we're going to have to figure out whether time-outs can be effective this young (not-quite-15 months). How do we teach them not to do something and that we're the parents-in-charge, if they laugh at "no"? Any suggestions are welcomed!
