I pay my kids to watch tv

Oooooo bad mother. Yep I am horrible sometimes. I am that horrible that I tell my kids I will give them money if they sit down and watch tv for 2 hrs. If they move, no money.

My kids drive me batty some days. I mean, whose don't? If you are reading this and think that your children are angels and aren't annoying sometimes, then you're reading the wrong blog. Back you go now while you can....

My kids have some serious energy and they would rather wrestle and ride bikes than watch tv. Maybe their diet of cupcakes, fruit loops and juice has something to do with it.....

Anyway, back to the story... Their energy never waivers. Like NEVER! They go and go and go like they have been filled with energizer batteries. The chaos here sometimes is abnormal. My favourite line is "the neighbours will call the police" (it's only a matter of time before they do!).

This Mumma here sometimes needs the time to blog, talk on the phone or generally surround myself in silence - the cocoon of silence. So I turn to the old trick...."I'll pay you to watch tv!"

It works you know. Hmmmmm, kids these days... money talks already! Am I setting them up for failure in the big wide world? Nooooooo. They will learn that you have to do dumb things in life (in this case, watch tv) before you get paid. If only they realised now that watching tv is easy!
