Has anyone ever used the stealth method of parenting? Dances With Shrapnel still holds this one against me:

witchypoo: Time for bed.

DWS: But I’m not tired.

witchypoo: It’s DARK out. (It was winter, dark came at 5:00pm)

or

witchypoo: Eat your corn.

DWS: I don’t like it.

witchypoo? Are you kidding? Did you know if you eat lots of corn, you can see it in your poop the next day?

DWS: Really? (wide eyes as he contemplates the thrill of seeing corn in his poop)

My mother told my brother that the steak he was refusing to eat was monkey meat, turtle meat, or some other exotic variation regularly. She also had him convinced he was from Mars, and I would help in this deception by telling him I could totally see the antennea sprouting from his head. Not sure what that accomplished in the long run, but it was entertaining. Especially when he would tell other people he was from Mars, see, you can see my antennea!

Hah! My #2 son discovered that a LONG time before I did. He used to call it “Poop with sprinkles.”

LOL… Way to mess with the kid! I can’t wait until The Boy is old enough to really embarrass in front of his friends. I am looking forward to that. Kids are fun to mess with.
