"You know the only people who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who’ve never had any." -Bill Cosby
We are in the depths of discipline. Before I had kids, I was told the importance of discipline in my child's life. I heard that consistency is key. I know of one "no-no" in discipling. When discipling your child, NO LAUGHING! Under no circumstance can you laugh. Laughing would ultimately thwart the purpose of the discipline.
Confession: I broke this rule, big time.
We are having major listening problems in our house. We have been trying to teach Kate to say "Yes Ma'am" when someone asks her to do something. During bath time, Justin was reiterating this lesson.
Here is how the conversation went down:
Justin: "Kate, when Mama asks you to do something, what do you say?"
Kate: Looked up, paused, thought and stated (very seriously): "bibbidi bobbidi boo".
I immediately started laughing! I am sorry, I just couldn't help it.
Justin chuckled, rolled his eyes and said she bleeds princess.
Oh, yes she does!
I always tell her she is my first baby and will always be my baby. She quickly replies, "I not a baby Mama, I'm a princess." Yes... yes she is!
She is all princess!
