Don't Make Me Pull Over!

Oh yes I did! I found myself pulling over on the side of the Highway because my kids were outta control! (I swore that I would never do that...and I lasted four years, doesn't that count for anything?!)

Resuming our drive home, I realized that the $20 bill I had on my lap was no longer on my lap. (so what if I was still in pajamas and had no pockets?) Looking frantically around, I had somehow forgotten about the pull-over-get-out-of-the-van-and-*beat*-the-kids-into-submission-ordeal until several miles later.

Then it dawned on me. I was being punished for turning into my mother.

[insert "stare intently with a scowl on my face until they calm down" *here*]

  1. I must remorsefully say, I have "pulled over" before. It was a sad occasion in my life as well. My kid was acting like her mom, I mean DAD! LOL!

    P.S. I LOVE that you are a stay at home mom! I get tons of reading material from you continuously updating your blog! :)

  2. Thanks, Lady luck. I'm glad to know that *someone* (ah-hem) appreciates my blog!

    and for the record, it was my dad that always "pulled over", but I couldn't say that I had turned into my father and not have the blogworld wonder if I was suffering from gender confusion.

  3. i say that to my dog when she's being bad... but i don't think it scares her.

    "ooo! you're going to pull over? does that mean I can get out and pee/poo/run/play fetch?"

  4. My Husband has had to use that line a few times. He only had to do it once and it scared the crap out of them. Now all you have to do is tap the brakes and they straighten right up.

  5. Nothing wrong with a little pulling the car over to beat, I mean, discipline the kiddos til they straighten up their act.

    We've been known to do that and there is a reason my parents did it. It worked.

  6. Wow, talk about coincidence, I just had to do that on the way home with the kids this evening. And for those wondering, didn't work. I must be doing something wrong.

  10. Blogs Get More Commonplace
    Information Week reports on a study from Internet metrics agency ComScore that shows a third of the Americans who are online visited a blog in the first quarter of the year.
