It’s not just for Christmas.
I’ve periodically tormented my poor boys with the threat of coal on a variety of other occasions throughout the years.
Like their birthdays.
And even Easter.
For the most part, it’s been a fairly effective bluff.
After all, nothing makes a holiday less joyful than the possibility of receiving a lump or two of coal.
But that all changed recently.
I ‘d been casually scrolling through some funny holiday comics online…
And then I stumbled across this one disturbing meme that totally changed my perspective.
My younger son thought it was awesome.
Now I’m scared.
I think that’s my cue to get working on inventing flame retardant coal…
~Happy Friday, friends! If you have kids and they’ve behaved in a less than saintly manner this year, do yourself a favor and skip the coal. Yikes!~
