Make it quick

Driving children to various after school activities can easily drive a parent crazy. "Don't touch me!" "Quit singing!!" "Ewwwww, who farted?" Blah blah blah. I had had enough and promptly informed my kids of this, when my son continued torturing his sister.

Mom: "Now you get to go to bed 30 minutes early"
Son: "Why?"
Mom: "Because you are too far away for me to smack at this moment"

At this point I see my sons head out of the corner of my eye with this comment

Son: "Just please smack me, you can reach now"

I almost had to pull the car off the road I was laughing so hard. Not a great point to make to the kids. Humor will get you out of most things.
