I do this blog for my family and loved ones that don't get to see Emily but still want to get daily updates on her. I do this for other people, not for me, and not for Emily. So to have someone post that I should use another method of discipline other than HITTING, I'm going to get a little "touchy". My "spankings" are anything but that. They are a little pat on a padded diaper bottom that let Emily know that I'm serious. I only do this after I've warned her twice already...the third time results in a swat (If I were to do this to Aaron it would be considered a love tap). And for all you who are curious, IT WORKS! It works amazing. She knows that mom means business and what she's doing isn't cute and that it needs to stop. I do this in the privacy of my own home so that I'm not embarrassed by her misbehaving in public or destroying things at someone elses house. You will thank me when she comes to visit you.
I was originally quite irritated that I had to explain myself, and if you saw this before it was edited I apologize for being so frank about it. Again, I do this for the people that I love and by doing my post before, I was letting someone get the better of the entire purpose of this blog. Sorry.
WITH LOVE to everyone that I really do this for,
