There Will Be No Licking in This House

I present to you a vintage ad for a laxative that is currently making the rounds:

I’m not kidding when I say that this conversation could well have happened between my husband and me just yesterday.

    Yeah my husband is kind of like that sometimes too. I often have to remind him that they are kids and not exactly the best at thinking through things so getting mad at them and yelling is not going to get you the results that you want. He was all set to ground them from going outside because my middle son broke two sprinklers in quick succession. My solution was to put the thing away when we were done watering the lawn, problem solved!

    Yikes, no wonder that kid was constipated. My sphincter would close up like Fort Knox if I lived in that house.

    And yeah, my husband can be a bit like yours, Awesome Mom. I’ve tried to tell him that “Snap out of it!” is not a useful response to a crying tantrum, but heaven forbid that we say anything about their parenting techniques, right? /rolls eyes.
