A Woman So Heartless


I wish so much of parenting wasn't trial and error. Yesterday I gave Sammy a spank for--(Can't even remember! Ripping up a library book I think, but it could have been something else) I think most parents who spank do it to relieve their anger. I'm opposed to that, so I made sure I was calm and gave her a dispassionate spank, with the intent of teaching her that what I am saying is important! Not sure what I'm teaching her though...she made a super sad face and sobbed, "Don't Hit!" She's done this a few times. While I think that some kids might benefit from a spanking, I've realized that Sammy is not one of them. She's a sensitive little soul. (And really, aren't all small children?)

I'm liking this song. Want to listen?
