When I was a little girl I remember a friend of my mom’s telling her that it would make her laugh to spank her children because the sight of madly flailing legs over her knee struck her as being funny. She didn’t spank often because of this. Now I understand.
This morning while we were getting ready for church, Violet was getting in to the bathroom cupboards (a favorite pastime). AJ put everything back, closed the cupboard door, and the following exchange ensued.
“No, no Violet! come to Daddy.”
And with that, she opened the cupboard again in the petulant indignance only a baby can muster. We were so caught off guard that punishing her was the furthest thing from our minds.
“Oh my gosh!!!!! Did she just say that?!”
“That was so freaking adorable!!!”
