Time Out Corner

I felt bad cause I feel like G spends so much time in the "Time-Out" corner lately that I should glam it up for her...


I took some of this pretty(but too thin for anything big) fabric from Brandon Malby and framed it.

I know....real innovative right? ha

Now at least I know when G goes into Time Out at least it looks cute

I bought the frames at Aaron Bros

  3. Decorating a time-out corner?

    This is one of the reasons our children have issues in society. Parents are not taking responsibility in properly discipling their children.

    A time-out corner should not be a place for her to enjoy...

    Furthermore TIME OUT does nothing more than let children know after I leave this corner I can do whatever I want to do and come back.

    I feel for you as a parent.
    No proper discipline.

  4. people take things way too seriously. If anon reads your blog on a daily basis they'd know you joke around a lot. It's not like you were, Hey G go to your time out corner and eat this cupcake. Time out is time out. I don't think you were celebrating it. Put her in the closet next time. Sure. Don't forget to wallpaper the inside of it.

  5. Hey Anonymous,

    what did the five fingers say to the face?
    S-L-A-P

    shut up and stop judging.

  6. EW. I hate when people hide behind "anonymous" to speak their mind. So cowardly. My parents put me in a time out corner my whole life and I turned out MORE than fine.

    On a happier note, that fabric is beautiful, I love how framing it makes it a piece of art.

  7. Hahaha Anonymous should be replaced with the name DOUCHE!!!! If they read your blog regularly they would get your sense of humour.I wonder if they smack their children to "properly discipline" them.

    I think the corner looks amazing and you are an awesome momma don't let idiots like them spoil a good post.

  9. I like that the time out corner is right next to the bar!!! I'd probably spend a good bit of "time out" there myself.

  18. Anon...it's called a sense of humor. Develop one.

    Amber-I adore your lamp shade in the last photo. It's giving me a case of the 'I-wants.'

  19. The first time I put my kid in time out in the corner, I thought i was being too hard so I gave him a chair. Little jerk threw the chair and told me the tooth fairy was going to kick my ass. yeah... so I waited for my husband to get home. Lets just say he never threw a chair again. Or mentioned the tooth fairy. Moral of the story is, STFU Anon.

  20. wow. i was going to post about my friend who bedazzles the belt that she spanks her child with. guess i won't now...

    (kidding...I know no one who would dare to do something as terrible to their child as...bedazzle them.)

  21. Oh that is the cutest picture ever! Love your comment to anon! Amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Love it! The only thing you need now is the Time Out Timer Chair from Wisteria....and there is nothing that irks me more than people who pass judgments on other parents....Anonymous must be so confident in their abilities that they can't even share their name...lame....

  23. Oh my gosh, she is so cute in her little pjs in the corner. Anonymous doesn't even know you and should mind his/her own business. Oh brother.

  24. I love how she's standing on her tippie toes, in the corner, in her p.j.'s... adorable :)

  26. Hi Amberooni!!
    My assistant,M, came in the office this morning and was so upset about your "Anonymous" comment on your post about G. BTW - she loves your BLOG!!! Sooo, of course,
    I had to check it out myself. WTF - First it's such bullshit for people to post anonymously!!! And...secondly - they should keep there harsh opinions for another arena!!! I had to laugh to myself because... I really couldn't wait to see your response, not so much what that idgit had to say!
    G, looks adorable on her cute little tip toes in the corner!! xo Kiki!

  27. OMG - normally I don't comment but I loved the fabric on your post and was reading the comments when I read the 'anon' one. We have three girls (ages 8,5,4) and we definitely do time-outs and they are all very well-adjusted thank you very much! PS - and obviously 'anon' didn't get your post title was tongue in cheek. I think you should do a follow-up post on the creation of a coordinating time-out stool just to mess with her ... ;-)

  28. Great post!! Really may I say great writing skills! I learned many things from your post. Painting home, furnishing materials, and structural proportions, we can create a home that is welcoming, helpful, and comfortable.

  29. You have to send this into My Favorite Hate Mail: Where Mean Comments Go To Die. Here is the link:

    People are so crazy. I actually really feel sorry for them. These people know that there will be a flood of comments to defend you and they just want the attention. Keep doing what you are doing! The framed fabric is adorable too as well as your little girl!

  31. This is going to sound bizarre, probs. But that picture of your little G in her time out corner is the funniest/cutest thing I have ever seen and makes me so excited for the day when our little G is big enough to be truly naughty...not just vomming on mom on her way out the door naughty.

  32. Love a lot that corner and I can feel that you didn’t pay too much for make it more attractive. I am so excited about this and you have a gracious style for focus this corner. Well I think each type requires different skills so a person must decide what path he wants to follow (Like You) before entering an apprentice and/or training program.
