Chats with Miles
Spanking, is a controversial issue these days. Honestly, I’m not sure where I stand on this issue anymore, but I used to believe, a spanking when done right (not out of anger or abuse), and done for the right offense (ie. defiance or disobedience that results in danger) could be a useful tool.
Regardless though, I have learned over time that Spankings, can also be a source of humor. How, you may ask, can a spanking be humorous?
Well, take this situation that played out with my DH and Miles when he was just two years old (in Aug. 2011):
After spanking the mischievous, and stark naked toddler, my husband hears this:
Miles: You have pooh, pooh on you now daddy . . .
on your hand . . .
DH: (Dismayed, Looking down at hand, full of poop)
Definitely an example of a spanking FAIL!
And, here’s another convo he had with my Father In Law while being baby sat, the very next month:
Miles had an accident (and by accident, I mean, he deliberately peed on the floor), and then, he proceeded to tell my Father In Law this:
Miles: Paw, Paw . . . Mommy said, “No Spankins,” and Mee Mee said I could have a sucker!
The art of persuasion and distraction starts early for some, lol 😉
