I'm begging her to whine . . .

I've been searching online for a USED copy of the "Parenting Manual/Handbook".
Ya know, the one I was talking about here?
I haven't found one yet.
Geesh, I guess I'll just have to have another kid in order to get a NEW one.
:shrugging shoulders:

I am still working on the attitude.
Now I have another issue.
One that's probably more annoying than the whole attitude problem.


Whining grates on my last nerve.
Ok, let me rephrase that . . .
Whining grates on my 2,006th last nerve.
uh yeah
That "last" nerve......well it was grated on many moons ago.

I think I can nip the whining in the bud though.
Starting today, if you whine in the "H" house . . . .
You get a chore.
Whine once, you get one chore.
Whine 5 times . . . You get 5 chores.

I'm almost begging someone to whine.
I have lots and LOTS of work that needs to be done.

Where's my bon bons?
Turn the soaps on.
This momma is about to CHILL-LAX while the kids do my dirty work.

Goodness me, my copy has been missing for a while. I heard they stopped making them, so I'm not sure bringing another kid is the way to go.

I am adopting the "you whine, you eat VEGETABLES." You know that stuff that is sometimes green and sends my kid screaming into the fetal position? It should definitely cure the whining or he will look like Popeye.

I'll get it started: But mo-om! I don't wanna do chores!

I love when the kids whine so I can have a day of no chores!

I am so going to start that idea too!

Haha... great idea! Good luck with that! I hate excessive whining, too!

Lol!! Seriously the best and most brilliant idea EVER!

Maybe you should write your own manual? I'll buy one! (ps-will you sign it, too?)

we have the whiny hineys in our house too. Totally feel your pain. I just wish I could get my three year old to stop. Maybe this chore thing would work well for her...we'll see.

Seriously, I LOVE that idea!! If it works, I'm all over it! Maybe I'll do it with tattling though. That is our biggest challenge right now!

I whine on my blog on Wednesday, but you can drink wine while I complain about only 1 thing in my week...Now I guess I need to pick a chore...bummer!

If you find the manual, can you send it my way?

You are so funny. How many chores have you doled out? Do you think it would work on 3 year olds?
