The Early Bird Gets the Spank

5:30 a.m.

The vehicle of naughtiness

Direct quote from Dooby: "I really love making messes Mom!" I'm about ready to trash the stool and put a childproof lock on his bedroom door. Shaun and I have determined that in times of crisis management, we must take drastic measures. We have considered taking a page out of Mao's little red book--developing propaganda slogans to be broadcast continually over loud speaker in the home. Our favorites include:

You can't have fun 'til the work is done
It's never too late to participate
Thanks or Spanks
Be Productive, Not Destructive
Don't Play, Just Obey
Don't Fight, Do What's Right
I'm onto you like stink on poo
Don't ask why or you're gonna cry
Do your duty or I'll spank your booty

It's now 7 a.m. and Dooby is ready to hit McDonalds. I'm ready to go back to bed. Atleast, much to Shaun's chagrin, I have sweet revenge as I capture precious moments such as this:

And mark my words, it will re-surface during his teenage years. Mwa ha ha ha haaaaaa!!!!

*Just a little aside-- we don't spank our children, it's just wishful thinking. We love them dearly.

Lori-Your blog is hilarious! All the funny things you write are spectacular. Me and Scott had a great time reading it together last night. Scott could relate to your "dog house" video. He gave me a crock pot for our anniversary this year. In his defense I did tell him I wanted a new one....just not for the day we celebrated our wedding. Sadie is so pretty...she is getting big! It is fun to read about all the naughty adventures your kids have.
