A Prisoner's Special Dinner

When you are naughty in the Old West, you get the traditional bread and water dinner. Mom served this up to Elf, complete with the "Wild West" plastic dinnerware. Elf has given me permission to post this on my blog. He would like you to feel very sorry for him, because he got into trouble tonight and will be missing my reading "The Wizard of Oz."

  1. He does indeed look very sad! And, very cute.

  4. He did a great job making me feel sorry for him - acting in his future?

  5. Sue, he'll be heartened to know that at least he's cute. :]

    Julie, I have to tell you something. I felt an awful pang of guilt reading your comment. Elf told me I could post his picture, but only if I gave him one of the Oreos on my desk and asked everyone to comment... so I did...

    Zimms, isn't this a sad photo?

    Kathy, acting is in Elf's present! LOL He's still in bed, though. When you get to be nearly nine, the cute measy mouth thing doesn't work any more.

  6. That's a look that definitely says "Missing Dorothy is NOT FUN!"

  7. Considering that I can't even see his dear little face, I would have to say that is the saddest countenance I have witnessed recently. I sure hope he learned his lesson!

  8. PERFECT! If I tried this with Griffin I'm sure he would scream the house down and tell EVERYONE at school that I gave him water for dinner!

  9. I guess this is what you call tough love. But it will prevent tougher love in future, so you have my support all the way.

  10. DMV47, he was pretty upset!

    Tracey, he went to bed early and instead of goofing off and chatting with his brother he went RIGHT TO SLEEP. Sometimes the best lesson we can learn is when to just go to bed LOL!

    Chris, Elf can complain at school all he wants... He was still fed, just not the pizza rolls and banana bread and orange slices and etc. everyone else got. Yeah, I know if I pulled this stunt with G he'd act just like Griffin. So I have to be more (less?) creative with him.

    Miekie, thanks! I'm telling you, he was really, really naughty. I think a good night's sleep is going to help a lot. :]

  11. I wonder if bread and water work better than timeouts.
