CherkyB, Manipulator

Me, CherkyB: "Now, I want you to spend the whole night in your bed tonight. Santa won't bring you as many presents if you don't stay in your bed."

MaxieC: "Oh."

Me, CherkyB: "Yup. See HannahC stays in her bed all night, so she's going to get more presents than you are. You don't want Santa to bring more presents for HannahC than for you, do you?"

MaxieC: "That's OK if HannahC gets more presents."

MaxieC: "Yeah. Or if I get coal and coal and coal and coal."

Me, CherkyB: "Really? You wouldn't mind getting nothing but a stocking full of coal for Christmas?"

MaxieC: "No. Cuz I could toss it up in the air and then catch it."
Apparently, I suck at this.

Dratted kids. You need to resort back to threatening. Threatening always works. Use something totally untraceable by Social Services, like "If you get out of bed, T-rexs with light sabers will chase you all the way to Roswell where aliens will beat you mercilessly with pool noodles from Altair-7."
