Friday night was our Ward (Church) Christmas Party. As we were getting ready to load up the Suburban I decided to have a chat with the boys.
More like a preemptive strike.
" Boys, tonight when we are finished eating dinner, and before the program starts...
You know..When all of the other kids are being naughty and running around all through the church, and their parents aren't paying any attention to the destruction they are causing, and the other people without kids are getting really annoyed...
you will stay in your chairs at the table an be nice."
Immediatley my 6 year old starts crying. No, it was more of a loud wail.
"But then it will be boring, and we won't get to have any fun! I dont' wanna go the the party."
We did manage to keep them at the table the whole night. They still managed to get into plenty of trouble anyway. They had a good time!
Because you were nice, and listened to my stupid story, I'll let you go over to
