How long will it take her?!? UPDATE!!!! SHE DID IT!!!! HOLY SHIT SHE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Day 2....Has yet to clean up her toys and dirty clothes in her bedroom. Told her until she does it, she will not watch cartoons, no treats, no going outside and playing with her friends, no riding her bike. I will not cave in.....I not will cave in.....I not will cave in.....I not will cave in....I not will cave in..... Ahhhh when will this stubbornness, hardheaded 4 yr old last??? I let her on the front porch and watch the world go by...



We finally got the pool up...I got my new suit on, she was watching me, she took out hers, she is dancing in joy thinking she is swimming with mommy. I turned and told her, "Nope, not until you pick up your stuff" then I calmly exited the door, and the look on her face was like I just took her lovie and burned it. And then ther miracle happened, light from above shined on my home and it took on a angelic glow. And in excactly 18min 43 sec she had her toys picked up, suit on, floaties in hand. Ahhhhhhhhhhh victory is sooooo sweet....almost like chocolate....*sigh*
