Whining, Why and Rewards...I just might lose my mind!
My career as a hairdresser has changed from a pre-child 40+ hour a week crazy fest to a one day a week "vacation" from my really hard job as a stay at home mom. Every once in a while, I get to do a special style for a client heading out for a big night, and for this, they end up at my home. This particular client was in her mid 30's not married, and no children but would someday like it all. Her hair took me about 30 min. and in that amount of time, she came to the conclusion that being at my home made her "hit the snooze button on her biological clock". I think I know why...
My 21/2 year old is proudly pottie trained, and I'm not ashamed to admit that nudity and bribery were my main tactics in accomplishing this. I often wonder how every pottie moment has created a line at the pantry with everyone expecting a marshmallow and every poopie followed by the excitement of suckers for the whole house. Really? HE is the one doing all the work and somehow HIS reward has become an expectation for everyone??? I'm hoping that this will end by the time my kids are 15 and 18 because there is just something kind of weird about the thought of them both running in announcing what he just did in the bathroom at that age??? I don't know, just a thought.
Speaking of whining...We have to beg you all one more time...we are up for a chance to win $25,000 with The Green Awards that would allow us to do amazing things with our Earth Monkey line!!! But we need all of your votes!!! You can vote daily (you only have to log in once) and if we could get you all to do us this favor, we will never ask for anything again! (um ya right!) Thanks for your support!!!!
How about this...We will give a bib to one person that is, or becomes a google follower, votes for us at the Green Awards, then comments below and tell us you did it and give us a "snooze button" story. I think you can all do that, we know your smart!!
