And then...

If you haven't read my last post, at least read the first paragraph and then come back and read this post...

The 4 greatest words...and then...

When my DARLING 2-y-o was in trouble yesterday...we've been battling eating...she started giggling, at which point I pointed out the fact that I was NOT amused. She looked at me with a big grin and said, "Be Happy, Mommy!" I then explained that I was NOT happy because she was being naughty instead of nice and I didn't like it when she was naughty. We struggled a bit more over the eating...during which point she lost dessert (1 Oreo...I'm SO generous), lost her afternoon snack, and lost ALL TV for the rest of the day...she was also doing various other naughty behaviors during this ordeal. She was on the brink of a spanking and absolutely knew that it was coming when she looked at me with her big, wide, innocent eyes and said, "I LUB you, Mommy!" OH, MYLANTA! I nearly lost it in a fit of laughing, but held it together and told about how much I love her and that is why I want her to be a good girl and want her to eat good food, etc. etc. I tell 'ya! I am WORRIED about dealing with this girl as she gets older and smarter. I just hope I can keep up!!!

So, that's the 2nd chapter in the "I LOVE YOU, MOMMY" diaries. Let's just hope it's a 2-part book. SHEESH!

Ethan said "You're mean. I hate you!" the other day.

He got a good spanking and I doubt he'll say that again.
