Haha funny how these things turn out. I've threatened stuff in the past and they've been delighted - then you have to think 'darn it, do I carry it through or find something they really WILL dislike!'. Enjoy your night off and congratulate yourself on your authoritarian stance, my lovely. Cheers! xx

Rosie Scribble

Cheers Becky *raises a second glass*. Maybe I should make this a regular event. I'm enjoying this night off business. Next time I'll just threaten no TV for a week, or something like that. Hang on. That would mean I couldn't watch it. Hmm. Need a re-think. Hic.


Ohh enjoy your evening. Yep definately pick a less exciting threat next time. lmao Mich x


I bet they all have a great time,l enjot the wine. We are sat up with a poorley Mini Mad at the moment. He has a really nasty cold and is struggling to breath

Rosie Scribble

Oh no. How awful. Hope Mini Mad is on the mend soon. It is just awful when they are ill and clearly suffering. xx

Rosie Scribble

I will, thanks! You're right. I need to choose a less exciting threat next time!


Well it is vital to carry threats through, although possibly that backfired in her being excited lol. Enjoy your night off! :D


LOL-think you roped her into that one methinks!

Or so many times I've made a threat and regretted it even before the words have left my mouth. You were right to carry through with it though, and looks like a bonus on all sides! Result!


It's definitely happened to me before. Usually the kind of the threat involving 'if you don't stop that we'll have to go home.' To which they reply, "Ok, let's go home then..." quite happily.....


Scribbles did you do this on purpose for a night off? ;)

Rosie Scribble

You mean - threaten my child with an overnight stay at her grandparents knowing she would say yes so I could then enjoy an evening of peace and quiet with a drink followed by a relaxing bubble bath, AND enjoy a lie-in in the morning? I could not possibly comment, Erica! ;)

Rosie Scribble

Oh I've done that one before and ended a shopping trip early to find I'm the one who has lost out. My daughter was perfectly happy to go home!

Rosie Scribble

Well I may have been secretly pleased to get a night off!


I hope you enjoyed the wine! Ah threats, glad you pulled yours off! I say 'no computer' and he's 'ok!' and I'm like 'no tv' and he says 'fine!' I still do time out, I have to. I've also posted about my latest experiment today but I don't know if it'll work... Good luck in the future!!


That's very funny! I was thinking - are these horrible grandparents or something? Mine tend to have their first sleepover at the grandparents' before they can talk or remember it. I need to occasionally have a night off... I hope you enjoyed the pub!

Rosie Scribble

Mwa, I was hoping that the thought of a night without me would get her to behave! In the end it turned out to be more reward than punishment!!

I LIKE this idea! There's only 700-odd yards between our house & theirs, so I reckon I might get away with it before he changes his ever-vacillating toddler mind!
