30 Days Of Christmas In Love (continued)

Readers: This is a series ending on Christmas. For Days 1- 17 see previous posts.

The reasons I love my husband are:

Day 18
He is  Andy Griffith, Charles Ingalls &   Mr. Mom all rolled into one! 

My husband is a fairly firm disciplinarian. He manages to always
be sure to mix in just the right amount of  tenderness and  understanding while opening up a can of whoop*ass on whichever child is being unruley.
Don't worry there is no child abuse involved in the opening of the can. Just the tone he uses when angered is usually enough to spur them into behaving. But sometimes plan B comes into play. He will take away their allowance or their favorite video game or some other privilege. And of course they have PLENTY to lose.
He is fair in his punishment. But most importantly he almost always follows through with whatever he says he is going to do if they don't behave. The results of this are sometimes quite amusing . Often now when one of the children has disobeyed and is called to task for it...they will go and get the money from their piggy bank and bring it to him before he can even  ask for it. Ya gotta love it!!!!

  Teach a youth about the way he should go;
  even when he is old he will not depart from it.

  1. I have really loved reading all these posts about your husband! You must be one lucky woman to have caught the catch of the day!
    Bless you both!
    Big hugs and a very happy Festive Season to you and your family!

  2. Yeah I agree with Alice! Again would you consider cloning? Just a thought, you could market the clones!

    Good news! I think I found myself a keeper! But it is new and they all seem like keepers in the beginning!

  3. I must be part canine because I'm the same way about smoke. I once complained at a restaurant that someone was smoking and it turns out they were smoking out back, through two rooms and two doors!!

    Happy Holidays!
