Laying Down the Law

So.... Juliana is grounded. On the first day of summer vacation. Wait, let me clarify- she was actually grounded on the afternoon of the last day of school. *Sigh* I won't get into the nitty gritty but it involves her teaming up with her BFF and some shenanigans and badness ensued. What? It's okay if your friend is doing something bad and you tag along because they make some sort of buffer/bubble around you that protects you from getting caught and/or being punished? I certainly never bought into any convoluted logic like that before. (Snort.) Now that my initial anger has subsided and I've spoken to BFFs mom to compare stories I have to almost feel bad for the kid. Ava is prancing around like a pretty pretty princess because if my girls love anything, it's basking in the glow of their siblings punishment. Plus, Ava got to go on a trip to Chicago with Steph and Maddie today while I dragged Juli around on all my errands. The horror! If anything, I'm hoping that maybe at least this way she can learn her lesson right off the bat that I am not about to take any guff this summer vacation. I'm laying down the law because frankly, I don't want to be sitting on Maury Povich's couch in five years watching Juli wave her finger at the audience and yell, "SHUT UP YA'LL! YOU DON'T KNOW ME!" Hopefully I can tame her now so the worst I'll have to deal with is her she starting a Facebook group about how her mom totally suxx.

  1. Oh my gosh, you are describing my world!!! Since school's been out, Bailee has been nothing but a pain in the butt! I'll be right there with you and Jason on Maury's couch. Ugh! Who would have thought that Scarlett would be the good one?
