It's A Bird, It's A Plane

I'm driving down the street, and suddenly, a shoe clubs me upside the head!

I told Ander no no. I said shoes go on your feet. I said you don't throw shoes at mommy. I put the shoe in timeout.

Ander laughed.

:(

On the plus side, my mom told him to stick his tongue out at me, and I said no no, that's not nice, and you could see him struggle with it, but he obeyed me.

Etcetera.

The trouble with putting the shoe in timeout is that he's already had his fun with it, so why should he care? It's too late to stop him! And no, I don't have any effective alternatives to offer, I just had to laugh because I've gone through the same scenario so many times.

At least you prevented the shoe from becoming a repeat offender. The problem is the other shoe - should it also be punished for a perceived propensity to attack or should it be allowed the benefit of the doubt. Do you wait for the other shoe to drop or take action now?

Yes, yes, you all mock. But remember, I'm an injured women, what with the big shoeprint shaped bump on my noggin. ;)
