It must be the full moon

The boys have been really, really disobedient the last couple of days. In fact, one of our recent conversations went something like this:
Me: Evan, pick up these toys and put them in this toy box. (The unspoken plan was to watch a movie when he was done.)
Evan: I'll do whatever I want.
Me: Then you will go to timeout.

Evan: I'm not listening to you!
(He was persuaded to listen and pick up the toys, and he got to watch a movie.)

A conversation from today:
Me: Evan, you need to _______.
Evan: I am not talking to you for 100 days!

A conversation with Dad from tonight:
Dad: Boys you need to obey. I don't want to come home from work and have Mom tell me that you disobeyed all day.
Evan: Okay! ... but I might forget in a few days.

Please let this be a temporary thing and let it pass soon!
