I'm not above using this tactic again

Last night, the kids threw pennies all over the floor and were behaving otherwise atrociously. Joe, exasperated, threatened to throw away the Christmas tree if they didn't pick up the pennies.

Later, when the kids were in bed -- Theo was asleep and Melody called Joe in. He walked over to her and she said in a groggy voice,

"Daddy, when I fall asleep, please don't throw away the Christmas tree."
