Orange Juice Drinking Contest

We are having an orange juice drinking contest!  Or should I say NON-drinking contest? 

We thought we would teach the children about self control.  Todd found some nice size orange juice bottles on sale. Each child got one.  Sunday night we told them that starting on Monday they could drink as much as they wanted, whenever they wanted, but they would not get anymore until Friday.  Todd marked Evelyn's bottle to help her out a little. Then everyone wanted their's marked.

I didn't think to take a before picture, but here they are on Monday at 12:30 p.m.

L to Rt: Ellie, Silas, Avrie, Evelyn

It looks like Silas is in the lead, but I am pretty sure he got into the large container of juice and added more to his bottle. I know that Evelyn asked for more and Ellie poured some into her little bottle. Of course she already drank that too.  I'm thinking at 3 years old this whole self discipline thing is a bit difficult to understand.  Evelyn is already asking for more orange juice.

This is going to a be a long week. LOL

Have a blessed day! ~Tammy
