Fool me once....

Addison (mini-mommy) has figured out that if she says she has a poopie I will get her down from the table before we are done with meals. One of my "rules" is that we stay at the table until the meal is over. Well, I hope I have put a stop to that. We were all having dinner with the CFO's Mother, Aunt, and Grandmother when Addison said she had a poopie. I asked "Do you have a poopie?" She said yes. So I said "OK Addison, I will get you down but if you don't have a poopie you will get a spanking." I then asked again if she had a poopie and she said no:) I told her that if she just wanted to get down she should say "down please." Next words out of her mouth? "Down please."

I use the work "spanking" but I do not "spank" the kids. They do however on occasion need a tactile reminder to obey:)

It seems that we are doing product placements with the kids:)

I love your blog it helps me have comedy in my life. I hope that you don't make it private. I think what you do raising your kids is great. But your sarcasm helps me get through my day. See I have 14 foster children all under 3 years of age. So your blog helps me.
