  • Me: Time for a bath
    DD: NO!
    Me: yes!
    DD: NO!
    ME: Fine I didn't want to give you a bath anyway. Giving you a bath is no fun at all!
    DD: Yes it is fun! I want a bath!!

    LMAO!!

  • Haven't watched the clip, but I have ABSOLUTELY used it. Nothing like "this is mommy's special food" to get them interested in trying something new. Let's just say that I'm happy to have two boys who really enjoy brussel sprouts!

  • It worked for me when they were young, but as teenagers they tried to use it on me. It didnt work, but didnt keep them from trying.

  • Ha ha! That was cute. Yes I use it on my daughter. Except I use " Okay time to eat. Go sit down at your plate". "No, I don't want to I'm sleepy." "I said to sit down and eat, please." "No, I'm tired!" "Ok, go to bed and I'll eat your food." "Noooooo, I'm hungry! I wanna eat my dinner!" LOL!
