Rip the spout off a whale to show them. Actions speak louder then words. In a moment of desperation the spout of whale got ripped off to tell the girls we have had enough and we are the parents, we have control and they will listen. Sounds a bit harsh but it worked and now all we have to say is 'REMEMBER THE WHALE'
Although the whale is Poppy's both girls where in tears when the whale got hurt. Monique through tear stained eyes said 'its not a whale any more, its a dolphin', to this Dave and I have to hold back the laughter.
