We are THAT Family
... you know the ones.
I kinda understand…funny how even our kids life is blogged..lol;)
I see things like this in my Girlie’s future!
Yikes. Looks like a rough day. My son can relate to that picture.
So, you had one of “those” days too…
I am a slacker mom ’cause I forgot to attend a mandatory troop leaders for my daughter’s Daisy Troop…last Thursday. Just learned about it today!
SOOOOOO funny! I stumbled across your blog tonight and think it’s great! A picture really can say it all, can’t it?
My daughter told me to “chill” after I asked her to tell her texting buddy goodbye. Sounds like we have had a very similar day.
Good thing they are in bed!
First I am sorry that it has been one of THOSE days. But I am cracking up on this one. And 2: I am sooo stealing this idea. Do you mind?….my 7 yr old ( Addie) has a hard time with respect. I call it “Addie-tude” Hey I think a new blog category was just born!
Oh so sorry that is has been one of THOSE days. I feel for ya!
I should have had my son do this today . . . only substitute “sister” for “mom.” ARG!!!
Sorry about your day! Good idea though – did it help?
i had one of those days too, but my son is too old to write sentences anymore. maybe i’ll just sign him up for the navy instead. really.
this cracks me up… only because I can sooooo relate!!!!
Hmm, and will we be priveleged to hear what came before the writing? My older son was told to write an apology note to his younger brother for calling him the worst little brother ever….hope youe Tuesday is better!
I love your blog.I love your blog.I love your blog.I love your blog.I love your blog.I love your blog.
I guessing one of your boys wrote that. Unless your relationship with your mother needs a much work as your handwriting.
I’ve had days like that, let me tell you. Hope your Tuesday is full of respect.
YUP! been there done that – and he’s only 5 years old!
Love it! You might want to keep that for the scrap-book. Pull it out senior year or college graduatin. Ha!
We do that too! And I feel your Monday, even though it was my birthday it doesn’t stop the kids from fighting or disobeying….
Does that really work? I may have to try that too. Sometimes making them say “Im sorry” straight to me and saying it like they mean it doesn’t seem to work. Maybe making them write something like that will.
Does it work for teenagers?
Ha ha ha ha. Oh, I mean how sad.
I had a weekend like that. My daughter is 13… going on thirty, she thinks. Hmph.
Must’ve been something in the air. I was never so glad for bed time, as I was yesterday! I swear, for 2-3 hrs before bed, my two were so wound up! Sheesh!!
You have summed up my last week in one picture! I am glad to know I am not the only one!
Oh how I remember my days of writing that Isn’t it funny how it comes back around full circle!
Thank you Thank you for this….. I so need to do this with my 9 year old disrepectful son…….
What is going on with our kiddos? Is it TV or just plain naughtiness?? My friend and I were just griping about this at soccer yesterday! Within minutes of my boys getting off the bus, it’s straight to naughty in 3.2 minutes (sometimes faster!!) Grrrrrrrrrrr.
Oh my day on Saturday. Some days you want to string em up by their toes. Did it help though?
I would have to count each sentence, knowing my youngest demon spawn would have miscounted just to shave off the number of sentences required. Excellent exercise!
This made me laugh out loud. If it helps any, I was nearly killed by a filing cabinet. That was the consistency of my blog post for Monday…
LOL oh no!! Cara had a similar paper the other day that said, over and over: I do NOT hate you. I do NOT hate you.
Thanks for the idea! I’m sure I can do the same with at least 2 out of my 3 kids this week, lol.
Our parallel lives I just sent “a” copy of ours :/ to the grandparents.
Just this morning they had to write out Ep. 6:1. ten times.
I love it! What a wonderful idea. I’m pretty sure I’m going to have at least two of these lists in my possession before the day’s over…
This is one of my favorite punishments. It drive the point into there little noggins and works on their handwriting skills. Its a win win really.
My kids had to write…I will behave in school! our lives are no different, maybe its the lack of humidity down here right now?????
Clearly, you have felt my pain.
Oh yeah, thanks for reminding me about that option. Been getting alot of flack here of as late.
To Do List:sharpen pencilsbring home scrap paper….
That is so funny! I’ve had my oldest do that too!! But..it didn’t work…does it work for you?
OK, I just stumbled on your site and you are cracking me up. Just this morning I had this conversation with my sons. Thanks for being so honest for making me laugh! Stacy Valdes
Gotta love those whiteboards. Too funny!
And I’m so glad you are doing “My One Month”! Looking forward to your post!
Seriously? I can SO relate…check it out as I copy and paste to you the e-mail I sent my husband yesterday at lunch..the subject was BAD LUNCH
the kids are whiny, grumpy, grouchy, mean…. it was a BAD lunch… from the time we got home till now… fighting crying…. we have stopped and prayed MANY times about our attitudes and I have spanked. (pause while I had to go spank AGAIN)
kids are now in bed. I am hoping they take LONG naps and get GOOD rests and wake up with much better attitudes.
~~~ yea… I so get your day… Hope Tuesday is better!
Ha! I can’t wait to use this!
Will that work on a 24 year old daughter??? I had one of the worst weekends ever with her and cried for two days. Might have even called you if I had your number…It was HORRIBLE. Oh sorry, this was suppose to be about you and your crummy day!!! Let’s have a pity party together because those days hurt!!!
Oh no! I hope you’re having a better day now!
You know, there are obvious tradeoffs in life. I had Monday off from work (I’m in retail management). I slept in (10am), mowed the lawn (including my beautiful new grass in the back yard), took a shower, and went to the movies (alone as my wife works overnights and worked Sunday and last night).After the movie I swung by the gorcery store for a few necessities, came home to eat and then out to a men’s Bible study.
Now, compared to the note you posted, it might seem like I’ve got it made, but it is only because we don’t have kids (yet). We’ve been married 7 years and hope to have our daughter LynnMarie home from China within the next year and also hope to get pregnant sometime too.I’m just saying, it’s a tradeoff.
BTW I found your blog through Bubba’s Sis.
Bwhahahahaha! I haven’t used the write it a thousand times method in awhile. I think I may have to try it out again!
LOL, I hope the rest of the week is better!
You might not have laughed a lot today, but I sure did when I read today’s post! Thanks for the laugh!
That is great! I remember writing sentences in school…mmm..I have never tried it at home! Good idea!-Sandy toes
LOL, my post from today is pretty similar, but with a twist.
WOW! A LOT like my Monday!!
Pull it out when that child’s first child turns 2! Good job!
Yup, those are the days when bedtimes can’t come fast enough.
Uhm…I just can’t wait till mine are old enough that I can have them do that!
Seriously LOL at this~!!!!
I’m glad to see I’m not the only one that uses corporal punishment as a means of discipline, lol. I have sooooooooo made my girlies do this before!!!
I remember doing these when I was in school, and now schools around here aren’t allowed to do this… apparently, it’s corporal punishment, you know! ((Insert BIG roll of the eyes here )) Ugh!!!
Thanks for the new addition to my bag of discipline tricks!
I can’t wait till my kids can write! It looks like how my morning is shaping up.
Looks like whichever of your kids had to write that one needs to pair up with my kid that wrote sentences that were posted on my site on Wednesday of this week!HILARIOUS!

HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
