  • ha! It's true. I got screamed at my entire life, and it loses it's effect eventually. It has always been my plan to terrify my children via the scary lean in whisper.

    Josephine is. :) I also like it because I can do it with a smile so no one knows I am threatening to drop her off at the pawn shop on the way home.

  • My mother did this wit ha smile on her face and it scared the bejeebus out of me every.time. My fatehr would yell and I would just stare at him.  My mother was much more evil in punishments than my father was.
  • This is totally going to be me. Hissing at my kids.

  • My mom didn't whisper, but she'd lean in real close and drop her voice about an octave and it scared the bejeezus out of me. "Don't....you....ever do that again."

    YES! I'm working on getting that exact expression right now.

    Then Joey normally says "Mommy? I good girl!" :( And then I melt. I have to work on melting slowly, not so quickly. But those eyes...

  • for public lashings, my mother liked to grab my arm, then dig her fingernails in. It was like getting to beat your kid in public, while no one was the wiser.  Lucky for Liza, I'm a nail biter.
  • Blue eyes! Holy crap Meegs, Gwen is a cutie.

  • When I try using my stern, authoritative voice, both my son and husband laugh at me.  I fear that when I really need to punish, my voice will hit a high note that only a dog would respond to.

    I must adopt this if I have any hope of controlling by child...and husband.
