Stubborn Kids

...but Mommy can be even more stubborn!

This is how we spent approximately two hours late Monday afternoon. She dumped all the crayons a little after three, and I told her to pick them up. She'd pick up a few then dump the box again.

There were many tears (and spankings) involved, but she finally finished about 5:30 and got to eat dinner.

I really wanted to just put her in another room and sweep up the crayons, but I know it's important to follow through when we tell our children something. And sometimes battles can erupt over the silliest little thing!
