    "Sorry Comrade"?



    Give that child an allowance boost.

    Dear Youngest Child,

    Please wear socks. Please, please, please wear socks. Please. Your little grubby toes are adorable but they make me gag.

    Love,
    Nauseated Mom

    Well, he didn't get grounded at least! I cracked up. I don't do allowance, though - they trade chores for fun activities.

    We tried allowances.
    We tried time outs.
    We tried spanking.
    My three year old laughs in the face of all of those.

    You know what works for us? An arbitrary color system.

    My kids' school uses something similar that I can see from my phone - it's scarily effective. Literally the worst thing that can happen to youngest child is getting a red dojo point.

    Most beloved Child Two,

    I don't really mind it when you climb into bed with me. Even when I do mind it, there's not a lot I can do to stop you. But. BUT. Just as a ground rule, if you're going to be here...

    GET YOUR FEET OFF MY HEAD.

    Love,
    Ma

    Dear #3,
    I am SO HAPPY that you used the baby potty unprompted!
    Next time, if you could do it without removing the seat, so it won't run into the carpet, that would be great.

    Well, you can't have your cake and eat it too. LOL


    Dear Oldest Child,

    I am not being unfair when I ask you to wear matching socks on a field trip where you will have your shoes off for most of the time. I am saving face.

    Love,
    Exasperated Mom

    Dear Children

    If I may remind you of yesterday?

    "It's Mother's Day. We have to be good today...stop being so naughty!"

    "No, YOU stop!"

    "No, YOU..."

    Etc etc etc, the furious all in brawl with Star Wars bandaids all around at the end? You remember that?

    You tried, and I love you for it. The toast in bed was a nice touch. Thank you boys.

    Love,
    Ma
