New Rules

All right kids. Here’s the deal. Quite frankly, you do stuff in public that embarrasses me. That’s including (but not limited to):
Cussing
Hitting
Whining
Teasing
Bragging
Arguing back

If this behavior does not immediately cease and desist, I will inevitably be forced to do stuff in public that embarrasses you. That’s including (but not limited to):
Singing
Hugging
Kissing
Showing people pictures of you
Calling you sweet names

Consider yourself warned.

    I love this. Short and sweet. And tit for tat. (You can also threaten to say “tit for tat” in front of their friends. Thanks for visiting me today!

      Oooh…I just may start saying that in front of their friends. Or maybe “all righty then.” Or I could tell them how much of a baller I am. And then just giggle.

    Bwahahaha! Perfect response Lanie! Noting this ‘crisis management’ tactic for my classrooms & students!

    • Lainie Levin Says:

      Yep. It has served me well over the years, that’s for sure. Just the threat of dancing in front of their friends is quite enough.

    Renee sent me over – oh, can I identify with the urge to reciprocate! I think it’s our duty and moral obligation to embarrass our kids whenever we can. 🙂

    Nice to meet you Lainie. Any friend of Renee’s is a friend of mine.
