Time Out

When my son acts up, we might put him in a “time-out” for as many minutes as his age. He is supposed to be silent for seven minutes. He has not needed a time-out in a few months.

In December, I was supposed to renew my car’s safety inspection. I should have done it as soon as I came back from India, but I forgot. Yesterday, I got stopped and got a ticket. My son was in the back seat.

While we were waiting for the officer to fill out the paperwork, my son said, “We’ve been waiting a long time.”


“Do we have to wait for forty-three minutes?”


  • Nice one :-)
    Sorry to hear about the ticket..

  • Hi Rajeshwari
    Nice to see you back here.

    I talked briefly with Sujatha of Blogpourri last Friday (just before her flight back to India) and had a nice short chat. It turns out that her son went to the same Montesori school that my son and your daughter went to. Isn't that an amazing coincidence?

  • I met her too. Her son and my daughter were in the same class.
    It is a small world.:-)
