Dealing With A Rascal
Cass, my once submissive, yes-mummy and boops-obsessed baby girl is slowly turning into a rascal. Stubborn, challenging, irritating, naughty -- these are just some of the words that I try very hard not to use on her everyday. On Saturday, she got her first major punishment from daddy.
It all started when she kept irritating and agitating her 2 sisters, thus they could not sit down to do their homework. When daddy came home, her 2 che ches reported this to daddy. Daddy reprimanded her and asked her to say sorry but she just would not say this very simple word! Daddy locked her in the 'dark room' but yet she would not cry. Though she was very angry and frightened, she was as quiet as a mouse throughout her time in the dark room!! After a 20-minute 'battle' with daddy, she was 'kicked' out of the house by daddy and still, this tough cookie with a steely determination and hard head did not muster a cry!! Finally, she lost the fight and she sobbed but not the wailing kind of cry. But yet, this stubborn girl just would not want to say SORRY. I kept prompting her to say SORRY but all she said was "I dare not say"! *facepalm* After some drama with her throwing up, I washed her up and was still trying to coax her to say sorry to her 2 che ches and daddy. After she had cooled down and was level-headed again, she agreed to apologize. I called the hubs on the mobile phone and Cass finally blurted out the golden word to daddy and then I brought her to apologize to her 2 che ches.
Sigh.... this girl is such a challenge now. She has acquired the negative attributes from both her che ches -- stubbornness from Alycia and cheekiness from Sherilyn. Dealing with Cass now brings back my not-so-fond memory and hair-pulling days of having to discipline Alycia and Sherilyn when they were younger. Motherhood sure is challenging and the more kids you have, the more FUN you face everyday! Like I have said before, life if NEVER a bore when you have kids.
Cassandra... still looking as cute as a button but drives my butt up the wall every single day!
