I Would NEVER say ThAT!!!!

Okay. So my parents never said this to me, but I used to hear parents threaten to LeAvE their kids in Wal-Mart when it was time to go.
I thought that was horrible and also that it would NeVeR be Me! WrOnG!!!
When I was out at a Wal-Mart with my son Jason and he was around two.I let him know that it was time to "go". He threw his chubby little body down right there on that nasty, dirty floor, and I said,"if you don't get up and come with me RIGHT NoW,I am going to LeaVe you here!!"I actually said it!!! It worked though, and up he got himself up and came to me and out we went!!
I became that MEAN parent!! Maybe, just maybe they weren't so mean after all!!!

OMG ALL THE TIME I catch myself saying things that my mom used to say to me, LOL! I love the new blog layout, Krystyn does such great work!

I haven't caught myself saying too many of the same things my mom said as a parent just yet because Andrew is only 19 months. But, I have said a lot of adult things she used to say and I sometimes cringe because it means I'm getting old!!

I don't know if you got my response to your email but we have lived in the Raleigh area since 1999 though we are both from NC originally. Small world!

its only horrible if you really DO leave your child in wal mart. but apparently thats against the law or something, child abandonment blah blah blah

Hi! Thanks for the note and I just grabbed your button but there is a typo in the button text box.

There is an extra h in the second http. If you remove that then the button/link works.

Take care, Lisa

nope hate to say it but threatening to leave is sometimes the only thing that works.

I said that phrase all the time when I was a nanny! It works!

My mom actually left me in a discount store when I didn't stay with her. I was six, and had to go to the service desk and ask them to call her at home.

If that sort of thing happened now, my mom would have been arrested.

Some changes are good.
