Timeout

Timeout's are really Jakob's most serious form of punishment. They involve standing in the corner or against a wall, not being allowed to play for between 2 and 3 minutes, depending on the seriousness of the offence.
Two days ago I hear the following:
"Daddy! Daddy! Come here, Daddy! Come take me out. Mama gave me a time-out!"

Jokes and Pretending

In the evening, I am singing Jakob his bed-time lullaby.
Jakob: "I want Mama to sing me a song."
Me: "Sorry, Jakob, Mama's tired, Daddy will sing you a song tonight."
J: "Pretend Daddy's Mama... Haha! I made a funny joke!"
