Too me it was mean and hopefully that will end next week, today, my kids would not get up after calling them, rubbing there back 3 strikes your out.... So I squirted them with the water bottle... OMG< i felt so mean... My son woke up right away and looked at me, my teen screamed but woke up, my 11 year old whined but woke up and my 9 year old was the first out of bed. one squirt is all it took ok, maybe two or three.
I told them we can do this every day if you don't want to get up.....
Listen, last night they giggled in bed most of the night, then the woke up to play at 4 am, 4:30 am, 5:30 am, I am so done with the non sense, daddy works nights and right now we are separated trying to work it out, and they totally ignore me... From this day fourth they are going to hear me loud and clear with out screaming nonsense.....

I call it the "Mommy essence" . I got it down to where a look is all it takes for the kids to get the idea. Now they just try to do what it takes to avoid the eyes lest what comes after the look. Still trying to incorporate it with the 2 y/o girl and boy is it quite a battle. I think I'll try other tactics for her. Otherwise we mommies all have the "Mommy essence" so yield it...yield it well.
