What goes up must come down

Yes Monday was to good to be true. Today is the opposite - whining, moaning and nagging. I canceled our fun zoo outing and brought the troops home early.

I am now refusing to be called Mum. That happens if you use what should be a term of endearment as a form of torture by repeating it every 2 seconds - I am kind and letting her use Jo not the harder to pronounce Jocasta! I've banished Trelise to her room - I can't call it timeout as that would presume that she is coming out and as of now I'm not sure she is.

The babies are lovely - fighting over a spoon as you do - but lovely!

Hope your Wednesday is better! I need to remember that "mom" tactic - I get very tired of hearing these kids say it!

I hear you on the mom ever 2 seconds. That can get very annoying. My son has the habit of repeating himself over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over... :)

ITA agree with TRACY! I tell my kids that after 8 pm "mom" becomes "Debra" and "Debra" does not treat kids kindly. ROFL!! It works.. they are asleep by then usually!

I hope Trelise is better for you tomorrow. I SOOOO remember those days!!!

I need to write a post about this. I do not answer my kids when they are bugging me unless they call me "Mommy, oh goddess of the Universe." Seriously.

Hang in there.
