Monday Eavesdropping

The Boy (mortified): AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I GOT MOCOS ON MY FACE!!!

Because I am trying to win the Mom of the Year Award (despite my best efforts to sabotage myself), I wipe his face with my BARE HAND.

Then he licks his lips, and says "mmmm, yummy!"

Yes, folks, he eats his mocos, now and then. I am not proud. Plus? I am pretty sure he gets that from his father.

But I have a way to stop this disgusting behavior. Yes, I do.

Me: If you eat mocos I can't give you chocolate all day.
The Boy: Oh. Sorry. I won't eat them anymore. I'm sorry! I'M SORRY! I'M SORRRRRYYYY! (Yes, he got more and more manic as he repeated himself.)

You know what that means, right?
I win.

Your using food to train your child? I hardly call that "winning".

Dear Anonymous:
Yay my first TROLL!
I am SO excited.

Also...just so you are fully aware...the corporal punishment seems to be helping as well.

Next time grow some balls, wouldja?

Anonymous; I take you don't have children? As soon as you see your toddler eating his own boogers I'd say you have no room to speak of it. Sometimes bribery puts the ball back in the parents court.

Buttercup I love that you did this...maybe he'll realize mocos don't actually taste good. I think chocolate was the best way to teach him the difference between boogers and food!
