3 Little Children........


3 Little children have lost their manners.........my oh my oh my
and when I put them in time out they ask..........why oh why oh why.

Dear little children your manners you must find
or perhaps Mommy will lose her mind.......
my oh my oh my.........

Please don't fight and please don't whine
for that sound goes straight up my spine
my oh my oh my............

I know the break is long and weary
and school is never dreary
my oh my oh my.......

but soon enough you'll be back to the grind
and begging for spare time to find
my oh my oh my...........

So off with your new hand held game
and no one but yourselves are to blame......
my oh my oh my............

What Mommy......off with our game.....how unfair..

Then you should have thought of that before you forgot how to share......
my oh my oh my.........

so my dear little children after time out
and your lengthy pout
my oh my oh my..........

we will have a meeting
and see if you can have a nicer greeting
my oh my oh my.....

For I will not spoil you my sweet little dears
so hear my plea and listen with your ears

bring back my sweet, obedient children quick quick quick
me oh me oh my........


yes it has been a challenging day. All kids......go through these days that test a mom's patience to the Nth degree. Today is one of those days and the only exception is Jennifer, the 2 year old straightened up her ways much sooner than my other two. So they are sitting in their rooms, not playing and thinking about their behavior. In about 10 minutes or so I will call them down and we will have a nice little talk about their unacceptable behavior. If it does not change then they will be "unplugged" and lose all electronic entertainment privileges. This works better than other discipline methods for now.

There must be something in the air. We had some discipline issues today as well.

Thelma said...

Thank you Shawna.......I think of you too all the time and pray for you and your precious family.

thecutestblogontheblock.com

there are loads of free ones. just be sure your blog is set on minima....back up widgets first...then when you add widgets back and blog is on minima you actually put the code in the gadgets area under html codes......it is so easy......I CAN DO IT.....LOL. then I go to edit and edit my font to whatever I want to match.

Hugs and prayers my friend.
