Hello peeps. How are you? Enjoying the Christmas festivities I hope? It's been so long again hey? But that's ok, it happens. We all have other things going on in our lives. I bet you've all been abit busy too. I seem very stressy at the moment and maybe even a little bit messy. Not because of all the christmas stuff, but more because of my darling little two and a half year old, who at the moment seems to be in training for her teenage years!
Yes she may in deed look ever so cute here, a picture of domestic bliss making mince pies in her Santa hat, but underneath it all there lurks a monster who hits me, doesn't do as she is told and who's only word is NO! And not just a little no either, but a big fat defiant NO! What's happening? This wasn't part of the master plan! I'm finding all this Tom Fool-ery very unsettling.
It's just a phase I'm sure. Isn't that what we mums say. But when will it end? How can I react appropriately? Have we been too soft doing the whole reasoning, explaining and ignoring the bad behaviour method of parenting?
Of course some might say she needs a damm good smack but we decided this is a definate NO NO for us. Anyhow how can you expect a child to learn not to hit by hitting?
I'm sure it'll work out ok. It's just sad to see. If anyone has any divine intervention they'd like to share, it'll be very gratefully received otherwise I might just offer her to Santa when he pops down the chimney, I'm sure she'd make a good little elf, it's just me she has issues with. Happy Christmas all. Hope your little helpers are being good boys and girls.
