Some of you are on the message board with me that I go to. I REALLY hope this isn't one of you because I will feel like a total bitch if it is! I don't think it would be because I know your screen names and I know how you guys are but I hope you didn't change your screen name to a different one and post this!
At any rate...curious of what you guys think about this post...
How old was your children when you started to (hate using this word) punish them? Normally i would say no a few times and if DS kept doing it, i would smack his hands. Today i took a nap thinking DH would keep an eye on DS. Well DH went downstairs and left DS on his side of the room (we have his side barcaded so he didnt get into our stuff, just temp until his own room is finished) and i wake up to hearing DH starting to yell. I guess i was asleep no longer then 15 minutes when DS crawled ontop of the bed, got onto the floor, grabbed hold of sissy's formula (brand new only just opened it and made one bottle) opened it, got the formula all over hell. it was on the bed, the floor, Sissy's clothes, her bed, even on her and she is only 4 weeks old. It wasnt much on her but still enough to have to strip everything down and wash everything. So i picked him up, put him in his crib, and spanked his butt. Not only did he get into the formula, he grabbed hold of my glass's and broke them, got hold of the digital camera and got it caked in formula and my pop he knocked over. He even got the pop and formula on the bed mixed togeather. I gave him ONE spanking and made him sit there in his crib for 3 hours while i litterally got on hands and knee's to clean everything up. And he didnt even cry he started laughing at me!!!!!!!
DH is starting to tick me off because i'm the only one acting like a parent and he only acts like a "friend". He doesnt wanna wake DS up when he falls asleep in the car and we get home so i'm the horrible parent for waking him up. He doesnt yell at him, nor does he smack his hands when he gets into stuff he's not suppost to. He doesnt do *mean* part of being a parent i'm always doing it. No wonder why DS is daddy's little boy, and not mommy's little boy.
And DH had enough nerve to fall asleep while i'm cleaning everything up and didnt even help me at all. I ended up cleaning up the whole room, and just now got finished with the laundry!!!!! He slept though the vacumning, and everything and now i'm just pissed!!!!!!!!
I wrote my response on the board but didn't have enough space so I had to cut A LOT of it out. I was just SHOCKED she spanked her 14 month old and then left him in the crib for THREE hours while she was pissed off and cleaning. I was also shocked she sounded upset that her son wasn't crying in the crib but was laughing instead. :|
