"Hip Hops"

Carson is an unusual little boy! He is your typical two (almost 3 year old.) He loves to play and get into things. He loves his brother and has to do everything he does. Carson also has to do things in his own way and in his own time.

When children misbehave, they have to be disciplined appropriately. Most kids are sent to their room, stuck on the naughty chair, or made to face the wall. Well, this is the unusual part. Carson loves his flip flops (or hip-hops as he calls them.) If one is lost, it is the end of the world. And imagine what happened when he found the one the dog chewed up. He has to know where they are at all times and has to wear them everywhere we go. It is a good thing that we live in a place where it is flip flop season most of the year.

Anyway, when Carson is in trouble we just have to threaten his "hip-hops" and everything is well again! I always have to laugh when that is the one thing that will work when dealing with his tantrum or naughtiness.

As long as flip flops are in style, we'll be okay!

That is so funny! At least you can do that wherever you are...time-outs don't exactly work in a grocery store, but taking flip flops would!

I love the pictures of your family. Your kids are all so sweet. I like the little story on Carson and his flip flops. I hope he didn't miss his black ones for to long.
