Crabby Mommy Powers

Why is it that the only time the 9 year old does puts on her "big girl panties" and does what she should is when I have to be crabby?  Are there special powers I didn't know about?    When she was little, we called it "Mommy Voodoo".  She'd only fall asleep or calm down with me.    Now.. I ask 6,7,12 times for her to do something.  I put on the mean crabby voice and WHAM!!  things get done. 

does anyone else have this issue?
