Effective Threats for a Teenage Boy

It was early evening yesterday, and I was moving about the kitchen assembling dinner ingredients, when Dainon staggered in, blood dripping freely from his head. "Wow, that looks real!" I said, with an appreciative smile. "But hey! It's dripping on your shirt!" It was a Toyota racing t-shirt. For some reason, those are favorites with the boys.

"I think I'll bring some of this to school tomorrow." There was a mischievous glint in his eye. He was throwing down the gauntlet, it was definitely a challenge.

"That's great," I said with a smile. "But you DO know what I'll do if you ever bring it?"

"What?" he looks at me with anticipation.

"If you go to school bloody, I'm going to help you out and deliver you some sanitary pads."

He wasn't disappointed. One point for mom.

Ah. Gotta love motherhood, don't ya? I threatened to bring soggie cereal to school for lunch today if Samantha wouldn't finish the cereal she wanted over the eggs I made.

Good one! I'd say you get five points for that one - and maybe a bonus because you are the mother of boys! :)
