Natural Consequences

Sam and I are big on natural consequences. Not that we don't ever discipline Talmage, but we try to let things take their natural course when it seems prudent. The other day at dinner Talmage wanted the water pitcher to drink out of instead of his cup. We let him, thinking the very full pitcher would spill and he would realize it wasn't a good option and that a cup works much better. We had to chuckle when our approach backfired on us and Talmage had no problem whatsoever with drinking straight out of the pitcher! It was then that we had to step in and explain why he shouldn't drink out of the pitcher. :)
