I know why some people spank. I am trying really hard not to spank but sometimes the urge is very strong. Aidan is two. He is just a little guy. He doesn't need to be spanked. I tell myself this over and over again.
I am going to work really hard to set up the next couple of days to be good for all. Thank god Anna was good today. She has been great for a couple of days (aside from being brilliant all of the time:) ) Aidan has been acting very terribly two. It is not fun to have your child scream at the top of his lungs, crying, and trying to escape the stroller at the mall. It is not fun to tell a child over and over and over again not to pull on the dogs ears. It is not fun to try and help a child with his toys but have him realize he is too frustrated and didn't really want help and throw his toys all over the place. It is not fun for these things to happen over and over and over again all day long.
But he does give good hugs.
And he does like to "hoy-ee" his little sister and give her kisses.
And he does look super cute in my mismatched shoes walking aroind the house.
And he was very nice to the other kids in the play area at the mall.
And he is still my baby.
I keep telling myself these thing over and over again. And I keep asking Adam for hugs.
