On a serious note, I'm happy for your kids.
You really sound like a great parent.
I wish I had received one of those when growing up.

Oh yes. I have perfected my Julie Andrews voice.
And shouting is my big gun, if you will. So I never want to bring out the big gun unless I really, really have no other choice, because I don't have a back-up plan if that doesn't work!

Well (a) you are preaching to the choir, and (2) no amount of awesome parenting on my part, and I am a TOTALLY AWESOME PARENT if I do say so myself, is going to change me from a version 2 to a version 1 blogger. Because kvetch is my middle name.

The trick is to hold the destiny of something the child holds TOO dear.
I'm only asking for version 1.5, kvetching is so.much.effort.

For those of us to whom kvetching comes as naturally as breathing, it's the suppression thereof that requires the effort.
I'm just sayin'.

please come live at my house. because i have been known to do the vacuuming with a book in my hand. it's not terribly efficient but it makes me happy.
as for the yelling - i yell a lot. mostly because that's how everyone in my family conversed - nothing lower than a shout, please. it doesn't mean i am mad, or not. but when i get very very VERY quiet - trouble.
