Time outs and "are you kidding me?"

Tonight Eloise put Dave in a time out. He was having some frustration issues with our washer and didn't react appropriately. When he came in to apologize to us, Eloise told him that he needed a time out. She walked him to her room and had him sit in the time out chair.

She then walked back out to the couch and waited. I told her she had to let her daddy out of time out. When she retrieved her dad, she told him, "I forgive you dad".

Then a while later we were talking about the story of Joshua. She's been watching it on Veggie Tales lately. Dave and I were trying to get her to remember how many times Joshua walked around the wall. She wasn't recalling.

Me: Eloise, Joshua walked around the wall 7 times.
E: Are you kidding me?
