So, my sons were being awfully quiet, and busted them doing their best scissor artwork on my drapes. They will be 4 and 3 years in February and March.
The hard thing was figuring out a suitable punishment for not only playing with the scissors, but also cutting up my drapes. I decided that their new and beloved Optimus Prime and Bumblebee Transformers are mine for a while. They hang on the curtain rod as a reminder.
In one way it feels so mean of me, but in another I know it sunk in that shredding the drapes isn't cool in Mom's book.
My question is if it were you (or has been you) what would you have done in the same situation?
