Parenting Takes Patience And Imagination...

At the dinner table last night, it occurred to me that my husband and I think along the same lines in terms of parenting but our methods seem to be a bit different.  Case in point:
Husband, "Rachel, if the only way I can motivate you is the application of electricity, then I guess it sucks to be you."

Me, "I've always found that the application of ice water can work wonders when it comes to motivating any of the kids."
It's good to know that even after all these years, we still agree on the basics....
QOTD: "Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation and a pinch of creativity." ~ Bo Bennett


  1. Combine water with electricity and yowza, that's motivation ;)

  2. Oh the fun you could have with a super-soaker gun and some ice water!

  3. P. J. O'Rourke once suggested, "Explain the concept of death very carefully to your child. This will make threatening him with it much more effective."

    Okay, maybe that was a little much.
