Quick Quote

Recently, at our house, this was the conversation after one of those occasions in which Thomas had (smartly) chosen to obey all the way, right away, in a cheerful way.

"Gracie! Guess what I did to Mommy?"

"What?"

"I obeyed her!"

Yes, to those of you who haven't seen Thomas in action lately, this was indeed something to be proud of. It seems to be rather hard to obey without questioning, whining, complaining, and putting off. Generally in that order. My pat answer is "Thomas, you need to obey Mommy first, then ask your questions with a sweet voice" Spank, spank.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

LOL! Oh, that sounds like our routine lately as well! Thanks for putting such a humorous spin on it though! Laughter does a mommy's soul good, doesn't it?
