“Do you want the Easter Bunny to come?” Yes, I have resorted to using a stuffed bunny rabbit to get my two beastly ladies to behave this past week. Just as I have used Santa and even the Elf on the Shelf in times past, now it is the Easter Bunny’s time to shine.
And sadly I am using this one in all his glory and to the fullest extent of the law to get my point across to have good behavior reign. We got the girls new bikes that the Easter bunny is bringing them. They even got to pick out these new bikes in Toys R Us this past weekend. So, physically they have seen what the Easter Bunny is going to bring them.Here Are The Bikes that they Easter Bunny Will Be Bringing
Toy R Us was having a sale on bikes and this was the weekend to get them, since the following weekend is Easter. Kevin and my brother put the two bikes together and they sit in the garage now until easter Sunday.
And now every time, they misbehave, which with a 3 year old and 2 year old is seriously more often like not, I am now hearing myself say, “If you aren’t good, the Easter Bunny isn’t coming!” And faster than you could say “Stop”, they do just that and stop being scootches!!
But here is the thing this ends in less then a week and then I have to create something new. As a child, my mother used “The Bad Man”. No joke, she would tell us that if we didn’t behave that “The Bad Man” was going to come and take our toys away or do something else that we wouldn’t enjoy or like. I still remember being scared about that so-called “Bad Man”. It didn’t take much, but she had us shaking in our boots with a mention of that one.
After Easter though, we don’t have much else coming up except Emma’s birthday and I could very well use the birthday card I suppose with her. But Lily not so much, because November is truly a long way off and don’t think that would quite work for her just yet.
I could also use the other one my mom was known to speak, which was, “Wait until your father gets home!” But again that one doesn’t quite work, because Kevin truly isn’t the type of guy that instills fear in our two girls. I am more the disciplinarian here, so if they are to fear anyone it is more me then him. Yes, I am more the bad cop as many know by reading this blog by now. My father was more th bad cop, so that is how my mom got away with that one.
So now I am left with only a few short days left of using the Easter Bunny to keep my two in line and trying desperately to come up with a new way to continue to accomplish the same behavior goals without the use of the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus or that damned Elf!!
