At last, a practical use for blogging

Said to Joseph this morning during a big dramatic tantrum over being denied usage of a video game - "If you don't knock it off I'm going to blog about this."

He was instantly quiet as a mouse.

This blogging gig has finally paid off.

Oh, but you blogged about it anyway! Hardly seems fair. ;)

I must remember this threat for my kidlets. Maybe it will work on them too. Someday.

I wonder if that would work on a 7th grader? Excellent idea!

Oh my Gods!!! I have used that threat, and it's worked. "That's enough or mommy's going to tell her blog friends about this..." Instant peace. Even the 2 yr old stops and gives the "You wouldn't" look

I know it works on my co-workers. I'll have to try it on the little one. Thanks for the tip!

Excellent. I would think it would work even better on a 7th grader.

My kids LIKE when I blog about their antics. They feel like stars. Hmpf.

Nice!! If my 8-year-old knew what blogging was, I totally would use that one!
