CONFESSION

I watch the Duggers. There, I said it and I think admitting it is key. Confession number two...I'm also reading their book. I think I might be a Dugger stalker. Anyhow, I got this idea from their book. Because honestly, I need all the practical parenting advice I can get. All they have to do is say "okay Momma" when I tell them to do something and they get a sticker. At the end of the month they will get a penny for every sticker earned. The "okay Mommas" are suddenly coming out of the woodwork; they're even saying it when they don't really need to. Who knew pennies could be such a motivator.

P.S. I think Jaydie may have passed on his finger issue to Nolie. We're gonna need a whole other chart for that.

I confess I might be working out consistently at the YMCA right now because they might show reruns of the Duggars during the morning hours and every machine has a TV hooked up to it...

Yes, that IS the 1st step. "Hi, I'm Cari and I'm powerless over watching the Duggers." But see when we confess our sins, God gives us new ideas (like stickers)..Jaydie and Nolie need to confess that finger thingy though...

I like the Duggars too, Cari! I think this is a great idea. They must not use initials, though. That might get confusing with all their "J's" :)

Hey Cari! Dena's friend Mindy here...your blog is hilarious!!! Love the funny things kids say list to the right. You had me cracking up!!! Also, you and I are kindred spirits in terms of the Duggars. Seriously. I even mailed them a card two years ago...there I said it. A card!!!! To their address!!! (Or whatever address was on their website.) I haven't read their book but it's on my list. Have you checked out their link to the Operational Definitions of Character Qualities yet? Love that too.

Anywho...I'm following you now too!!! :)
