I have always had a way with words, however, I find myself saying outrageous things to my children all the time, just to make a point. Sometimes I wonder if I should be ashamed of myself. Should I? You tell me.
“If you don’t brush your teeth properly, they’re going to fall out and you won’t be able to eat food anymore.” (I’m going to have to backpedal on this one because my son has reached the age where his baby teeth are going to start falling out.)
“I can’t stop the car here, it’s against the law. If I stop here the police will come and put all of us in jail. So no, I can’t stop to pick up your toy. You’ll just have to wait until we get home.”
“No, we can’t watch any more tv. Too much tv makes your brains melt and if your brain melts, you’ll die.”
“If you don’t wear sunscreen in summer, the sun could burn your skin and it might all fall off. That would hurt.”
I’m going to hell aren’t I?
