    I so hear ya on that one!!! I feel like I could scream NOW to the top of my lungs if I wanted to (or had the energy) and still nothing would happen. My kids look at me like they are confused when I say “now”. Like “what’s that strange word mom is saying over and over lately?”…”I don’t know but it’s very funny how her face turns red like that.” I give up…and they aren’t even teenagers yet.

    *snort* It was titled “123 Magic” wasn’t it?

    You don’t paint a pretty picture for my future… But, I have a few years yet… Must master my military general voice and yell “NOW” as often as possible, just so they get it. ;)

    Hah! More like “123 Make Mom’s Head Explode!”

    I’m off two minds with the practice thing–I mean, if you practice saying “now” they get to practice ignoring you :)

    Oh, yes…I feel your pain. “Now” has sadly come to be interpretated as, “I’ll do it on the 1st of Octember” in my house. Glad to have found your blog~

    Hey there! I’m a first time reader of your blog…wanted to let you know that its very informative and to keep up the great work! Looking forward to your future articles. :]

    “Now” has become one of those words in my house that is only used by parents, and is always ignored by children…sorta like “chore” or “bathe.” In fairness, there are words my kids use, that I ignore (“allowance” would be my favorite – they ignore “chore”, I return the favor on “allowance.”).

    Wonderful blog – wish I had found it sooner!

  7. Laurie Says:

    Hey, I’m borrowing that idea and ignoring “allowance.” I think I might also ignore “PS3″
