Justice is Sweet

Justice is Sweet...

Early on, when the baby bear would bump his head on something... I reverted to doing what my Mom did with me...

We divert our attention from the "pain" and turn to spanking the wall, the table, the floor, or whatever "caused" the pain. We spank it and say, "No, No, Don't hurt this baby!" and then I pet him and hug him and tell him that I love him. It works! No more tears. In fact most of the time, he laughs!!

So... now that he's almost a year old and talking more and more... he understands more... AND HE WANTS TO DO THE SPANKING now and even shakes a finger at it and speaks in his baby Greek with great disgust that IT has given him a Boo Boo. Oh, no. What have I started?!
