The Mommyland Nagging Spectrum

In a post that I'm running tomorrow, I talk about nagging my kids. I shared the concept of how much I nag them vs. how much I could nag them with Amy of Pregnant Chicken. And then I begged her to help me make it into a graphic - which she did. 

Amy, you are a damn genius and I love you the way Lafayette loves Jesus on True Blood.  Except that I don't really want to be intimate with you and I am not a witch.

And now we jointly present with great pride and stupidity... The Mommyland Nagging Spectrum.

  8. It's got to be time for something from the offspring ladies. I hear buzzing in my head and I don't know where it's coming from....

  9. Almost 11 today, the kids locked me out of the house and I had the guy next door take my door off the hindges so I could get in. I thought I was going to kill someone I was so mad!

  12. Too funny and so true!

    I was at a 9.5 recently with my four boys (ages 6 and under), so I sent them to time-out in their rooms on their beds. On the way down the hall I over heard one of them say to the other, "And she thinks WE'RE the ones who need a nap."

  13. Maybe it's just due to summer vacation, but I have been at 11 for the past 2 days. Could also be the PMS.....

    Ooooo! How do hormones factor into this chart?!

  14. I turned it up to 10 and all the way back down the other day. The husband has been promising me he would install a baby gate for our basement steps. Still not done. The baby almost plunged head first down the stairs, and all I had to say (well, scream) was the word "TONIGHT." and he knew what I meant. And by God, do I have a baby gate now? Yes. Yes I do.

    Kate, Lydia, and Amy FTW!

  16. I taught my children baby sign language (don't judge to harshly, they WERE babies at the time!) just so I could tell them to "STOP" with hand signals alone. I also frequently use signing as a silent prompt to remind them to say stuff like "thank you" to someone, and most of the time the person (particularly if they're elderly) doesn't even notice. Now we need the advanced dvd so I can learn to sign "NO playing outside until your homework is done" in front of visitors and let them appear way better trained than I'm sure they will be.
