There once was a boy who was spunky,
He often said, "I'm Mommy's monkey"
"Grounded forever" I said.
A dull life he would dread.
But he went on and grew up instead.
Actually, he IS still spunky. He's also still my monkey. And I haven't stopped making the same old threats...."I'm going to ground you forever if you don't quit growing up".
Unfortunately, to no avail.
