S-antagonizing

Recently overheard...

Sarah: "If you have to ask yourself, 'I wonder if I've been good or bad,' you have probably been bad."

Darren: "It's okay if I get coal. There are already a lot of presents under the tree."

So much for my behavioral motivation plan for the next two days...

Too cute! I informed my children last night that I think someone may be getting coal. To which their dad replies "What's coal?" UGH! Way to ruin a moment.

LMBO. We haven't put the gifts under the tree yet it looks so sad and lonely - but our 3 year old would have PEEKED....anyway this works for the behavior motivation too!

Thanks for the giggle.

That is so funny! When my kids were littler, I didn't put the presents out under the tree in advance. Kept the worry factor a little higher.

Wishing you a fabulous, blessed Christmas!

Hahahahahaha! I so adore that son of yours! He's just so smart!

As for comments like that, my 16 year old son was told all he was getting was a lump of coal. His reply, "Well at least MY snowman will have eyes!" (Wonder if he's forgotten we don't get snow in Dallas? lol)

By the way, that is SUCH a cute picture! :)
