What's Wrong With This Picture?

Bugaboo, coming into Princess' room where I'm looking for a clean shirt for her to wear: "Mooommmm, Professor just said that he'll kick me in the faaaaaaccceee."

Me, calling down the hall: "Professor, stop talking to your brother that way RIGHT NOW or I'm taking your remote control car away". (He got it at the thrift store yesterday for being super extra good while getting ready for going out and while visiting teaching. My excuse? I told him that "Sometimes Heavenly Father rewards us for choosing the right by surprising us when we don't know it's coming". Ah yes, I'm sneaky like that.)

Bugaboo: "Moooom, he...."

Me, yelling down the hall: "IF YOU DON'T STOP THAT RIGHT NOW, I'M NOT TAKING YOU TO THE DENTIST!!!!!!!!!"


Professor: "Then we won't know if our teeth are clean or not!!!"

My kids love the dentist. I must be the only mother in the whole world who threatens NOT taking their children to the dentist as punishment!

Our appointments are at 3:00. Wish us luck!

Yeah, I bet you're the only mom who gets to say that.

Emma loves the dentist too! Such a weird kid. She even asked for her binky back so she can wreck her teeth and go get them fixed again.

Cracking up!!! Hopefully they'll remember how much they love the dentist when they're older and getting cavaties fixed *shudder*.

Who needs an excuse for threatening or bribing our children?

I've always said, "Bribery will get you SOMEWHERE!"

Thanks for de-lurking...and for the link! :D

Way to give God the credit! LOL.
