I had an idea many years ago on how to deal with my progeny when they hit my last nerve. The “Velcro Toss”.
Picture one large blank wall, covered in one half of velcro…the sticking part.
Now picture a kid’s jumper (overalls to our followers who actually speak the Queen’s English!) made out of the stickY half of velcro.
Kids get rowdy…toss them in their velcro jumpers onto the velcro wall. Let stew for an hour or two. Peel off. Repeat as necessary!
I have had a stroke and will now be an annoyance to my children. I hope they’ve forgotten about my threats of using the Velcro Toss when they were small and lovably annoying.
