Santa threats

I love the Christmas season for many reasons.
The decorations.
The smell of the fresh tree.
Giving gifts.
Receiving gifts.
The meaning.

And being able to use Santa threats.

I know. Shame on me for not being a parent who can control her rambunctious children the "regular" way, but instead resorting to the threat of calling Santa.

But it works.

And if it works, then continue as long as you can.

That is Mommas motto.

Feel free to use it.

The Santa threats start right after Halloween and continue right up until bedtime on Christmas Eve. When my children are beating the crap out of each other, I pick up the phone and start dialing Santa's number.

You know? The special number that only Mommy's and Daddy's have so they can fill the Big Guy in on their children's behaviour.

When my children are cursing at me, I walk over to the computer to email Santa's elves to let them know that they can stop making toys for Santa to bring to our house.

I know.

I am a mean mom.

But it works.

For about 10 minutes.

My sister uses Miley Cyrus threats & calls me whenever she needs to tell Miley Cyrus what her girls are up to. :-)
