Empty Threats No More

Well I finally did it. I've been threatening for a long time, so I had to make good on it. After he lost a 2nd pair of gloves in about a 2 week time-span, I sent him to school today with the dreaded pink Barbie gloves. He probably won't wear them, but that's not the point. If he has a clue where they are (say maybe his locker, or on the bus), the missing gloves will be making their way home today. I hope so; I'll have to go out and buy more gloves otherwise. I think he'd rather get frostbite, than to wear those Barbie gloves.

Stay strong mama bear! I have to say I'm pretty good at putting my foot down at the age my kids are, but I predict it getting progressively harder as they get older.

I am just tucking away this parenting gem for a few years from now. Excellent idea!
