Excessive Force?

Just got a call on my cell…

Pepperkat: Daddy, did I interrupt anything?
ME: Heh, no, I’m at work.
Pepperkat: Has it been two weeks, yet?
ME: Ummm, no dear. It’s only been one week.
Pepperkat: But, but, I can’t concentrate on school or anything! This has been the longest week ever!

In case you couldn’t tell, she’s been banned from the Internet for two weeks for making her mother get up out of her sick bed to go looking for her when she didn’t come home from school on time.

No Neopets. No online RP. No AIM.

I’m waiting for DHS to call any minute. “Mr. and Mrs. Norton, we’ve had a complaint of cruel and unusual punishment…”

    Taking away Neopets is the only thing that works around here.

    We should hook our daughters up. Mine has some Neopet stuff she wants to sell, whatever that means.

    …also taking notes….
    Currently, the only thing that works is taking away the Playstation, et al, but they’ll grow out of that too quickly, methinks.
