Today was full of challenges for me with Luke. Daddy was in Boston on a business trip and Luke had his little "mommy is alone" radar on which he proceeded to use to his advantage.
He wouldn't listen to anything I said today unless I said it 5 times. This morning he squirted my expensive Arbonne skin lotion all over the bath tub. He proceeded to drool/spit water all over his new polo Easter shirt. He proudly then told me, "I spit", "I spit". To which I respond, "I spank", "I spank".
Then, this evening after his "baff" (bath) after I'd told him 3 times to stop jumping up and down and even gave him a spanking while he was in the tub he jumped up hit my bottom lip which went up into my front tooth, so now I have a busted lip and a blood mark where the blood has come to the surface. Lovely huh!
Needless to say, I put him to bed promptly at 8 p.m. We did not pass GO and we did not collect $200. I'm sure some of you mom's will understand my dilemma from today. Do you keep yelling and spanking your kid for the same thing over and over or is there a point where they finally get it and just do as their told.
Calgon...take me away. I'm tired and ready for Daddy to be home. His plane has landed and he's on his way, thank the Lord. Tomorrow is mom time at church where we'll be making an Easter craft and Luke can play with his church friends as he calls them. I need a kid break. How did Jason do this for 8 wks. by himself....I'm starting to wonder how he still has his sanity. No pic's to share today as I couldn't get monkey to slow down for even a minute to snap any.
