I'll never win the Mom of the Year Award

The older two are already trying to let the baby play video games with them.  (He can hit the "A" button for me, Mom!)

Oh, and the baby is already watching Spongebob.

High aspirations

"I am going to be a priest," says my middle child.

"You are?"

"Yes!  I am going to be a priest, then a bishop, then a Catholic* and then Pope!"

*He meant cardinal

Shaping up

Middle son has not been following directions.  Taking privileges away has not phased him; taking video games away has made no difference.  I've decided to take a cue from his soccer coach.

Each time my son does not listen or misbehaves, I ask him to run a lap around our entire backyard.  (We have a very large backyard!)  We began this yesterday.  He was winded after the first run but I still had him go out two more times.  

Since then however, all I have to do is say "get your shoes" and that gets his attention!  If this can continue, he'll either shape up or get in shape!
