Calm Mom Flash Cards

                One of my most faboo bloggie friends gifted me with this groovy swivel notebook.

                           I decided to make flash cards for the kids. (Well... really for ME.)

                                                 These save me from having to say the same things over & over again.

All I do is point to the page that corresponds to the situation at hand.

It's working for now...

But I have a feeling the novelty will wear off really, really soon.

"Please take your hands out of your pants" had me rolling! So funny.

I could add a couple from our day today so far....
Please stop throwing your pizza
Please stop trying to stand in the grocery cart
Please stop screaming NO!

Love it....very creative! Please stop asking me why? Oh I wonder if it would work on husbands too?

Can I borrow the "pants" one to use for my boss?

I also like how your handwriting kind of disintegrates as you have to add more pages...

I don't have kids but may be in need of one that says "get your finger out of your nose". No reason...

Awww....the little notebook has been put to such good use. :-) And Reno Therapy's comment is cracking me up...I should do the same in my house. In fact, Please Take Your Hands Out of Your Pants is sort-of universal for all households with males, no?

Laura - Followed closely by the necessary card "these are my boobs, not yours".

laughed out loud, esp. at hands in the pants...

So wonderful. If only my children could read! I say "please" a thousand times a day! Lately I fear I'm being tested by my son, every other sentence out of my mouth is "Please don't throw things at your sister". You made my day.
