I’m sure we’re the only ones with this problem. Certainly everyone else’s children have this completely together. But — my kids are a little pokey around bedtime. One day a few months ago, the Husband had HAD IT. So he instructed them in the bedtime routine in a more military fashion. I say that as people who have zero military experience, by the way. In any case, it went like this:
Daddy: You have 30 seconds to get pajamas on. GO! GO! GO! 8 yr old Daughter, sprinting off to her room: What if we don’t make it on time?? Daddy: FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION!!! 8 yr old Daughter, shocked (shocked!): OH MY GOSH!!
We laughed for weeks.
LOL! I kinda feel like a drill sergeant some days so I could relate. And I couldn’t stop laughing.
