Catnip for kids

What is it about stickers? They're the equivalent of catnip for kids.

Firstborn is currently in a frenzy of shoutyness because I'm withholding the sticker stash (she's already managed to go through two packs this morning, surely enough for any child). Apparently I am "the meanest mummy in the world."

Excuse me for wanting to leave the house without another full set of High School Musical stickers being plastered all over me. A grinning Troy stuck to my butt is not my idea of a good look.

If I ever get to be King of the World stickers will be banned. Forever.

Buy some football stickers and go crazy sticking them all over Firstborn's fave toys and school bag. Lest the fallout be atomic, arrange a night out with Alpha and let the nanny face the music.

Thanks Rich, will do.

Anon - this is the problem. Any kind of stickers makes them happy and if I put them on toys and school bags - hey kiddie nirvana! Football stickers would be just another type of annoyance to scrape off my butt/ the walls/ every flat surface in our apartment. Might up my cred with the kids though...
