As hilarious and loving as my sweet girls are, age two certainly has its moments. There are times when I honestly feel like I would have more success talking to a brick wall than I do talking to them. I repeat myself over and over with no results, and it's maddening.
It has kind of reached a peak this weekend, and I am so over it. I had to spank Mackenzie's leg in the bathtub tonight for not sitting down when I told her to, and she leaned over and laughed at me. SHE LAUGHED IN MY FACE, y'all. What can I even do about that?! I had to sit back and take a few deep breaths before I could even continue the bath.
I do feel the need to say that my children are normally very well-behaved. We get compliments on their behavior and pleasant demeanor all the time (and I love it!). Honestly, bath time is the most trying process for any of us. That is the only time they consistently get into trouble and refuse to listen to me. We have had a few "pick up that toy/cup/book" arguments, but generally, those are easily manageable and quickly resolved.
Nonetheless, I am on a mission to find this book soon and see what I can learn about this discipline stuff. Any other suggestions? How do you handle toddler disobedience?
