Remember Cool Runnings? Especially, the part when the athletes wake the coach up and say, "Rise and shine IT's BUTT-WHIPPING TIME!!!"
I just did that to my kids. They decided to stay up until 11 last night. They ran around, they came downstairs, they yelled, and they physically fought! So, I crept upstairs, I turned on the lights and pulled off the covers and cheerfully declared it morning time! I gave them my list of expectations- Get dressed, clean your rooms.
Charles Ingles would never put up with this and neither will I! (I've been watching little house)
My children do not have authority in this house and I am reclaiming it: no back talk, no in-a-little-bit, no excuses, and no exceptions.
These kids are going down. (in a loving, godly manner)
You can pray for them today. They are going to need it.
God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
