A Super Mommy and a Judge have more things in common that one might realize. A Super Mommy acts in a judicial capacity on a daily basis. Just see for yourself.
Laying down the law: “NO hitting, biting, scratching, spitting, throwing, crying, punching, fighting….”
Mediation: “Who had the toy first? Let’s try to share.”
Dispute Resolution: “Zayden will play with the toy for 1 minute and then Xavion will get a turn.”
Investigating: “Maybe the ball rolled under the sofa…?”
Gathering Evidence: “There is green paint on the wall and green paint on your hand.”
Cross-examination of the Witness: “To clarify, you claim you only ate one cookie from the cookie jar and your teddy bear ate the rest.”
Levying a Fine: “No ice-cream today because you failed to eat all your green peas.”
Granting Bail: “Fine I will let you play for 5 more minutes, after that you will have to go straight back to your crib for a nap.”
Prosecuting Defendants: “On the said day in question, did you or did you not hit your baby brother?”
Issuing a Probation Sentence: “This is your last warning. Do it again and you will not get to play outside”
Issuing Community Service Sentence: “Put all your toys back in the box and clean up the milk from the floor.”
Issuing a Jail Sentence: “Your punishment is to stand in the naughty corner for 2 minutes.”
Reexamining the Verdict: “The new evidence shows that you were merely hugging your baby brother and not trying to wrestle him to the ground.”
Listening to Appeals: “Pllleeaasseee, Mommy….pllleeeaaassseee…just one more piece of cake….I promise I will eat my dinner… pplleeeaaasseee…(sob, sob…cry…scream)…..pleeeasseee…”
If you can think of anymore reasons why a Super Mommy would make a great judge, let me know and so it can be added to the list.
