Getting my kids motivated to get ready for school is no easy task. The other morning, I politely asked them in my sing song voice, “Go get dressed for school.” (Kind of sing it when ya say it.) A few moments later, I notice they are having too much fun in Anna’s princess tent to attempt taking off their PJS (much less the princess gown.) So, again I say, patiently still, “Okay guys, get out of the tent and get dressed for school.”
More moments passed. And, you mommas know what happens to your voice once more moments pass.
Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and crack every windshield in the house with one growl, I exclaimed, “GET OUT OF THE TENT AND GET DRESSED BEFORE I SPANK THE BOTH OF YA!”
Well, you know the whole “spank” suggestion works….although neither were shaking in their PJs.
As Anna walks by me, she stops and says, “You’re a monster.”
