I then told him he could play anywhere within this area OR if he violated it - time-out! I stepped into our rig to fix lunch AND keep an eye on him and of course, the independent child he is, immediately he trotted off-and-beyond the designated perimeter. SO out I went to retrieve him and place him into his tiny camp chair under one of the extended beds (not an exciting place to be) and told him "your butt is GLUED to that chair until time-out is over". Smart kid, no sooner did I step back inside the rig, then off he went - holding the chair "glued to his butt"; we (silently) laughed so hard that it took us a while until we could retrieve him and set a new rule! Note to all: the way they are as tots certainly remains once they achieve adulthood, at 26 he still pushes the envelope (thank goodness ;-) )!
