Can everyone please settle down?
One more time and I'm stopping this van.
Off with the TV; on with the pajamas.
Please put all those 1,000 toys away.
Extra cookie if you calm your sister down.
Running in the house is not an option.
Arguing with me won't get you anywhere.
Tell your father why the van is scratched.
I want to know why there is a lake in the bathroom.
Other "Moms" do not live here.
Never use your brother as a battering ram.
Can you tell that no one has been listening too well today in my house? Life with kids is an adventure. Some days, I feel more like a drill sergeant than a mom. One order after the other. Wouldn't cheerful, instant cooperation from your kids be wonderful? Those parenting books make it look way too easy :) Kids move along on their own track most of the time. Hopefully, I can ride along side on my own mom track watching that they don't fall off.
