Let me preface this by saying that this was the 4th time I had asked her to put on her pajamas...
Me: Brynn, if you don't get your pj's on, I am going to put your Princess storybook up high and it will stay there for 2 weeks.
Brynn: Mom, will you hang it up on the wall really high and use tape to stick it up there?
(This is a really heavy/thick storybook, mind you...)
Me: :) Yes...
Brynn: (all chipper and seemed satisfied...) Oh. Okay! :)
I think I need to think of some more creative ways to motivate my children to listen...or maybe harsher consequences?? We are getting to that stage w/ both of the kids that no consequence seems to bother them when they are misbehaving or making a bad choice. I'm kind of at a loss. While they are not misbhaving all that much, they have both learned that not listening 90% of the time is now the "cool" thing to do. Argh.
