I spanked my child today.
Today, Gage & I are not getting along.
He went down for a nap early....which means he had been in a bad mood earlier in the day....
He is just a limit tester.
He got a spanking....and then shouted, "don't hit me", which of course made me cry.
He then was crying about his "ouchy", and wanted me to kiss it (right where I spanked him).
But you know, when I tell him 5 times not to do something, and he smiles & does it anyway----what the hell am I supposed to do?
Time out didn't work.
The "stern talking-to" didn't work.
He is a mess today, and I'm tired of it.
I can't wait for my husband to get home from work so I can get a break.
