Thank You Santa Claus

It is official, Santa is not going to bring me presents this year. Why?

Well, quite frankly it is because I used his possible attendance at the annual Santa Claus parade tonight as a bribe to get all of the children to have a nap. And guess what? It worked! I am sitting here peacefully, enjoying a hot cup of tea while five kids are dreaming away of sugar plums, okay lets face it, likely suckers throwen their way tonight and hoping that they will get to see a glimpse or two of Saint Nick.

I wonder if this is classed as bribery for in the long run, I am doing both myself and the other parents a favour by napping the kids. I mean, at least they will be happy and not overly tired right?

Every mother enjoys a little peace. Lucas is watching Kung Fu Panda for the 100th time this week. But I let him, cause then I get a couple of minutes to myself.

I think if you are not getting any presents no mothers are. =)

Sigh. If only bribery worked with getting my daughter to nap. But perhaps if I held Santa over her?....

a little bribery now and then doesn't hurt anyone ;)
