A new level of grounding.

For a long time around here we've had grounding levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 but yesterday Mom made a new threat.  I told my youngest that if he didn't get his school work done today in a timely manner, he was going to be at grounding level 47.  It was just the first number I thought of.  We've been silly today and thought of 47 things you can't do when you are grounded to level 47.  Here they are.

Grounding level 47.

LOL! I love that list.

Then it becomes level 48:

#48 - No trying to figure out loopholes :)

Bet it would be easier just to get the school work done than to work out a loophole on that one! (Think Sarah's got a great idea to prevent that anyway!)

LOL! So funny. I read it to my homeschooler and she turned to me and said. "I'd cook!"
I feel like doing this all the time. Thanks for the blog!
