(and yes, that was in honor of GramMabel – she always called the kids “her chil’ren")
Memo to all my children: You will get to bed early tonight so you can get up tomorrow…get your chores done so are set for a couple of crazy weeks. Then you will do your homework. This is not an issue up for discussion, voting or any argument. You will do it with a happy hear and smile or I promise I will make you miserable! There will be no lollygagging, moaning or complaining. Somebody else does not live here so don’t even suggest I ask them to do designated task. I love you all very much but cross me on this and you’ll be sorry.
I copied Hubby on it as well. His response to me was this..
I am glad I have to go to work. Ha Ha.
Most all of what I wanted them to do today did get done.
It’s funny, three out of the four heeded my warning. One still likes to pop off at the mouth. I will be taking his phone tomorrow morning! SURPRISE!
