Has it really been that long?
Have my plans for world domination really distracted me from the blog?
Appears to be the case.
Well, anyways. I’ve been a little focussed on discipline. The school holidays were particularly insightful – if you call realising how evil my spawnlings can be “insightful”. Fortunately, no-one died; no-one was admitted to hospital; and no-one turned up on EG Grandma’s doorstep.
Nevertheless, I dare to admit I need smarter discipline techniques. Some that really bring the Fear of EG Mum in to play.
Back in the time before computer games (*gasp*), EG Grandma used to send me to my room… until she realised that I liked this punishment because all of my books were there.
So then EG Grandma would move my ‘little’ bookcase out of my room before sending me there. Unfortunately, this was not an easy task and she soon tired of this punishment. But dang, it was funny to watch.
Other disciplinary measures included:
- wiping up in the kitchen (not a great idea for an klutz like me);
- baby-sitting (not really punishment since I used my brothers as entertainment in RPG);
- and eventually the “driving the younger siblings to school” – which is actually a VERY EVIL PUNISHMENT, but since I gained a free-car for a period of time afterwards, I saw it as an excellent opportunity to work on my anger management and laser-beam the soccer-mums out of the carpark.
This week, I found a better punishment for my own spawnlings. And it is the winner of this week’s EGP Award:
Genius. Evil. Parenting.
I can’t wait to watch this in action. I almost want the spawnlings to do something bad.
