We'll be here!
Last night I told Jack to make sure he behaved at school, got a great report and stayed under the radar.
Jack: Why do I need to do that?
me: What normally happens when you get a bad report from school?
Jack: I can't do anything like watch a video or go on the computer.
me: Is that any fun?
me: Sooo, if you have a great day, what do you think will happen?
Jack: I can watch a video?
Jack: I can go on the computer?
me: Yep again.
Jack: What about both?
me: If you get a great report, I'll let you go on my laptop while you're watching TV. How's that?
me: Yeah, you just get off that bus and say "Step aside Mom!" and then grab the TV remote. Then I'll know you mean business.
(3:45 this afternoon at the bus stop)
me: Hi sweetie!
Jack: Step aside MOM!
Jack: Good report! Now step aside!
me: Well, we kinda have to be IN the house. But good for you!
He wasn't going to let me forget THAT promise, now was he???
