Another "Cal" moment
I'm impatient. I really am. I know, I know.... you'd never ever ever think this of me, but it's true. Heehee. So, lately I've been getting really irritated with the kids.... I'm tired of telling them to do something four or five (or six or seven or eight) times before they actually do it (and I usually have to threaten them with something.... no t.v., no snack, no candy, no games, etc.). Now, I give them one chance and then follow through with my threats. Today at Taekwondo, Patti wasn't getting her shoes on (Cal already had is socks and shoes on). So, I told her to get them on or I was leaving. She hesitated, so I said "bye, we're leaving" and started walking for the door. She freaked. But, she put her shoes on. Anyway, Cal was in trouble for about the millionth time today. I told him how disappointed I was and then he answered (with the saddest look in his eyes), "So, is Santa going to put me on the naughty list?" Um, yes... I've threatened to call Santa and tattle on their behavior too. Now don't shake your head at me... you know you've done it too!
