The Mom Stare

Do you know what a sense of accomplishment I feel that I have a "Mom Stare"?  With one stare I can make my children immediately cease a behavior that they know is inappropriate.  It's more effective if we're in public (Who am I kidding?  It's only used if we're in public because in private I'm not embarrassed to just yell...).  And, if I couple it with a snap, forget about it.

I would like to think it's a skill I worked hard to fine-tune over time.  But, I didn't have anything to do with it.  I think it's just a God-given gift.

It's an inherited ability, Nanny.
