Bedtime Threats

Sometimes I have to come up with inventive ways of getting the boys’ attention: 

Me: Okay, boys, time to put on your pj’s, brush your teeth and get in the bed.

Boys: (Generally not listening and causing chaos.)

Me: (Practicing my yoga breathing.) Guys. Really. Time for bed. Go downstairs. Brush your teeth. Now.

Boys: (Again with the not listening and the chaos.)

Me: Alright. Go downstairs now, put on pj’s, brush your teeth and then I’ll come staple you in your beds.

Boys: What?

Me: You heard me – now go.

Boys: Woo hoo! She’s going to staple us to the bed! (Scurries off down the stairs.)
