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!
