You Better Watch Out!

This is how I parent/discipline. I tell them these words exactly:


You better watch out, you better not cry.
You better not pout I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town!
He's making a list, he's checking it twice,
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice.

He sees you when you're sleeping.
He knows when you're awake.
He knows if you've been bad or good.
So be good for goodness sake!










I use my finger just like Santa is in the picture. I raise my voice and speak very seriously.
These words are especially helpful at bedtime and during the fighting, crying moments.

So yes, just to be absolutely clear - I believe in Santa Claus. I BELIEVE!

Here is our family's Santa Wish List:

Chris: new skiis
Katie: survive the Holidays
Lindy: An Easy Bake Oven
Kyle: A remote control car
Tate: Buzz Light Year Jet Pack with Wings
Sadie: ? Her words are still unclear at this point
