You use spanking with Timmy. You try to see his side of things, but you insist he extend you the same courtesy, and he still goes over your lap on a semi-regular basis.
You've just finished the fourth week of school, fall is here, but the weather's been acting like it for a while now. It's been raining off and on for a week, and it's been very windy and unseasonably cool.
It's Saturday, and you're out running your errands. Timmy has been suffering from cabin fever for a few days now, so you've been letting him skimp on his chores a bit. He was supposed to catch up on them last night, but you were both pretty blah, so you ended up ordering pizza and having a movie night.
Today is a beautiful day. It's much warmer than it has been, with just a slight breeze, and the sky is bright and clear. As you're heading home, errands finished, you decide to help Timmy finish the chores, then head out back to the pool.
When you get home, he's vacummed the living room, and his bathroom is clean, but his room is still a mess, the dishes you'd put in the dishwasher are still there, and the laundry you'd washed and folded hasn't been put away.
It doesn't take too long to find him...
"But Dad," he complains, "it's such a beautiful day I just couldn't stay inside any longer. Can't I finish the chores tonight?"
