Being Bad is What I do

zachary with new doo

Last night, I took Zachary onto our building’s roof to play before bedtime. The roof is great because it is a convenient, contained space where he can run around outside. Or, at least I thought it was great until Zachary discovered the little rocks in the corner of the roof. Zachary grabbed one of these rocks last night and put it in his mouth. I immediately forced Zachary to take the rock out of his mouth and told him we were going to leave the roof if he put another rock in his mouth. Of course, like ten seconds later Zachary put another rock in his mouth. I had warned Zachary and since he did it again I grabbed him and carried him off the roof. He was screaming and crying that he wanted to go back onto the roof.

ME: Zachary, I warned you if you put another rock in your mouth we would leave.

ZACHARY: ROOF!!! WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

ME: I will give you one more chance. If we go back out to the roof, are you going to put a rock in your mouth?

ZACHARY: Yes.

ME: What? No, you can’t put a rock in your mouth. If we go back out there, are you going to put a rock in your mouth?

ZACHARY: Yes.

ME: I don’t think you are getting this. Just tell me you won’t do it again. Are you going to put another rock in your mouth?

ZACHARY: Yes.

ME: You are supposed to say no. Are you going to put another rock in your mouth.

ZACHARY: Yes.

ME: Fine, whatever.

I took Zachary back out on the roof to give him one more chance. Thirty seconds after we got out there he put another rock in his mouth. I guess he was being honest about his intentions
