Mommy Memo: Santa Clause Is Coming To Town
Santa Claus is coming to town!
This is my favorite time of year...not just because of the Holiday lights, Christmas Cheer, family, gifts, and excited children...but because I can threaten them with Santa watching their behavior! The kids were fighting last night, and I said, "I sure hope Santa isn't watching." Silence.
They refused to pick up after themselves. "I sure hope Santa doesn't see this mess." Instant cleanup.
Mom wants a foot rub. "I'll bet Santa will bring you something extra!" Still waiting on that foot rub.
I joke about my kids, but they really are well behaved most of the time. They love each other and watch each others' backs. I tell them I understand the fighting. When you live wih 5 people in the same house there are bound to be disagreements, and I am trying to teach them the right way to deal with that. It's not always easy, so I am just going to enjoy the Holidays for what it is; Santa's turn to discipline!
