I did think about tethering after the other night, yeah. It would prevent Payton from being able to wander off and bully Aug, and would leave Auggie in control of how close or far away he gets to Payton. I also thought about tethering him maybe not TO me but tethering him across the room, basically confining him to a little section of the room without using an ex-pen or a gate. I think I might try tethering and do some rotating... tether him to me for a while and then tether him elsewhere. Because right now I think if Payton were tethered to me Auggie would be all "=< =< I'll just stay over here then... away from you... mommy.... okay..."

It certainly seems to have less "but what if he tries fence fighting..." or "but what if Auggie has to pee..." downsides attached, at least in my mind, so I think it's worth trying for sure!

I kind of wish Auggie were the one instigating all this because I feel like I could deal with that so much more easily. I'm still trying to figure Payton out and now he's trying to change the rules too. Jerkface.
