How could we stay mad???

Yesterday Kaden had to change his card at school to orange. They have this system involving green, yellow, orange and red cards per student. They start out the morning and afternoon on green. The students have to change their cards, almost as warnings if they are not doing what they are suppose to do. Yellow is more of the warning, orange-miss a recess, red-principals office. Kaden has had to change his card once to yellow for basically telling the teachers no. Yesterday he came home with a green in the morning but an orange in the afternoon. Apparently he was "refusing" to work for the occupational therapist. I guess Nate left it to me to be the bad guy, telling Kaden he was going to be in trouble when mommy gets home (thanks).

He got his computer time taken away as well as his cartoons for the night (Nate thinks computer time should be taken away for the rest of the week, I think that is a little too harsh for a Kindergartener). As we were talking about it Kaden got out "white" (communication device) and typed the following:

"grandma wants to say roar Kaden no color yellow she going to be so mad grandpa wants to say growl kaden we not color orange not funny again nana wants to say no babies (a game they play) brody wants to say waa waa waa waa"

I thought it was so funny (especially since those three, are some of the most leneant people in his life). Nate and I couldn't help but laugh. I think Kaden had it planned do I remind mommy and daddy of how stinken cute I am, I know...

What a clever little guy on my hands. Oh what is Brody going to learn????

Oh how cute is he?! And even though it's so hard to discipline them when they do something so cute, it's good that you stuck with it! Better to learn now than when the consequences are more severe!! He sure is a doll though ;-)

Kaden is so cute and smart. I don't know how we are ever going to say NO or discipline Nayeli.
