Reverse Psychology


Lately I have been trying my hand at a little reverse psychology on the chillins'. The older two just look at me like I am crazy, and Braden is too young to understand, but Savy is soaking it up like a sponge.


Savy, I say, whatever you do, DO NOT go and pick up your room. I mean it! Don't you dare do it!.....And off she is like a flash.


Savy, please, pretty please, DO NOT lay here on the couch and have a nap. Mommy wants you to stay up all day, follow her around the house while she is trying to clean, and ask incessant questions. The next thing I know she is crashed out on the couch with Dora blaring in the background.


And finally, Savy, please beat the living crap out of your brother. Push him, hit him, take toys away from him.....treat him like dirt. Whatever you do, don't you be kind to him..... Oh, I don't think this is working like I thought it would.......


Oh Well....I guess two out of three ain't bad!

Seriously Flo, I adore you and your parenting! I'm taking notes as we speak!

Kristi, please don't take notes just yet. My methods are sometimes quite unconventional, shall we say. Some time I'll tell you the story about how Kylie was going to run away and I helped her pack her bag. It's quite a tale. Oh well, you gotta find what works.

You are just learning this? You have like 12 kids already!

JK. I am impressed with anyone who can get their kids to listen at all, mine just laugh at me and do what they want.

Lewis & Florrie said...

Damon, my kids are perfect, don't you know. Did you forget who their mother is??

Damon said...

They certainly are cuties.

What I want to know is if they get to use "handy expletives"???

Lewis & Florrie said...

Damon, LOL about the "handy expletives." How do you remember this stuff??? I may swear in my mind more often that not, and Lewis has been the brunt of some swears as well, but NEVER in front of the kiddos. It's something I'm kind of crazy about.
