How Not to be a Good Parent - take 3632465

I really need to take some video of the baby.. I said that about him scaling the gate at 8 months.. and never got it.. and I can't remember exactly.. but I'm positive there were a few other great photo ops I missed.. the current one I want to capture his his horse dance.. if anyone starts singing he does this little prance thing that is uh dorable!!

What's NOT adorable is him telling me to shut up.. or rather SHUP! yeah.. I'm still baffled that my mother and I actually taught him to say that.. like.. did I NOT learn my lesson with the other two??

Us: Saaaaaay "NO!"

Him: "NO!"

Us: *giggling* "He's baaaad!" *more giggiling*

I was not, however, giggling when I was sweetly talking to him while holding him in my arms and he yelled "SHUP!"

I was like "WHAT?! Don't tell mommy shut up!"

"SHUP!" was what I got in return..

He did say sorry though.. cause I wouldn't talk to him until he did..

Although.. he did say "Unt uh!" the first dozen times I said "Say sorry! You don't tell mommy shut up!"

My bad..

Oh, then later on he told me to, yet again, shup! and I gave him the oh-n-u-didn't look.. and he goes "shhh" and put his finger over his mouth.. as if THAT is so much better..

The older two are doing well.. nothing new to really report.. Gavin's getting so big.. I just wanna pause him eternally in this stage of life.. he's on the brink of being a teenager.. and I'm really ganna be sad to see his immature self disappear..

He is just such a great kid.. he always wants to talk to me.. I hope that never changes.. I will really be sad if he turns into the teen who distances himself from his parents.. like I did.. but my parents were different.. they weren't into talking.. I am.. and when I'm not.. I pretend to be!

Man.. starting to feel bad.. i kinda laid into him tonight.. he was mouthing off in class so I punished him and he just didn't seem to mind.. he's all dancing around the house.. happy as a clam.. I want him to be a bit bothered that he's punished..

Parenting is friggen impossible.. at least always successful parenting is..

You wanna know a secret.. a secret I haven't and won't even tell my husband??

I felt so bad for yelling at Gavin.. i let him off punishment.. EEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I KNOW I shouldn't have.. but I was rude and wanted to make right my wrongs..

I don't know.. I am definitely of the mindset to appoligize to anyone.. even children.. if you wronged them.. and I definitely snapped at Gavin because I was cranky and not because of anything he did.. at all!

Ok.. I have to stop thinking about this.. probably wrong thing to do.. but I did it.. it's over.. and I don't wanna think about it anymore.. moving on..

Almost finished reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.. the first two were WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better.. but of course I gotta finish this one and see how it all ends..
