Oh, the drama (of being grounded) #sol17

So I was all set to write about how my vow to never cook again lasted less than 24 hours because I found a recipe for crockpot chicken and decided to use it. (Spoiler alert: it was terrible.) But my daughter got grounded yesterday (full grounding: no electronics, no TV, stay in your room), and she is so miserable that it is hilarious.

I don’t mean to be mean but since I got home, she:

– told me she was so bored and begged me to please not make her go upstairs

– went upstairs in a huff

– came back downstairs to make tea

– told me she couldn’t go upstairs with her tea because it had sugar in it, and she doesn’t want to get ants in her room

– asked me if I had a good day and when I said yes told me that was “too bad”

– apologized profusely and said she was just joking and please omg don’t make her go upstairs she has to finish her tea she’s so sorry

– asked me what she was supposed to do with herself since there’s nothing to do

– told me she didn’t have any books when I suggested she use the time to read even though there are more than three full bookshelves in the office

– asked me if I was making her stay in her room because she’s in trouble and I can’t stand to see her face

– got upset when I told her that no, it’s just that part of her punishment is being upstairs and if she’s downstairs that means she’s not serving her punishment

– went upstairs in a huff when I told her she had stalled long enough

– came back downstairs to wash her face in the downstairs bathroom since her toothbrush is down here so she might as well do everything down here (I need to buy more toothpaste, or her toothpaste would be upstairs)

– went upstairs briefly

– came back downstairs to gather the books she had checked out from the library and made a point to tell me that’s what she was doing

– went back upstairs

I wonder how long she’ll stay up there this time. 😂😂😂
