You Can Give Me Teacher of the Year Award

Lexi: Mooooommmmm! Addie is touching the ornaments with her pacifier!

Me {in high-pitched teaching voice}: Addie, we don't touch the ornaments. We look at them. You can sit on the couch or floor and look at the pretty ornaments, but we don't play with them. Do you understand?

Addie {nodding emphatically}: YAH!!!!

Me {serious high-pitched tone}: If you play with the tree again, you get 2 spanks. Ok??

Addie {smiling}: YAH!!!!

Lexi {serious teaching tone}: Yah, Addie. That means if you touch the tree twice, you get four spanks.

Me {proudly exclaiming}: Lexi, you just did multiplication! Awesome! Give me high five!

I love it!!! So does the 2 spanks warning work because we are having a heck of a time with Claire and our tree! We put her in her crib every time and it hasn't phased her... the little beast!

About Me

My photo
What started as a way to communicate with far away friends and family has become a place for this horse trainer/HR manager turned stay at home mom of 3 girls to hold on to a bit of her own identity. It's my take on the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the thoughts and feelings, the mistakes and triumphs of this family as we bumble our way to eternity.
