parenting milestone

We had a parenting milestone tonight, the first punishment. Daddy eyed Hannah starting to play with the dog's food. Daddy told her to stop, but she chose to say "NO" and throw a little bit of it. Daddy sat her in the corner and told her to stay. We kept her there just two minutes. Her eyes were wide and her lip quivered. She started to leave the corner once, but scampered back when she noticed Daddy was watching. When her time was up and we told her she could come out, Hannah ran to Mama to cry and wanted picked up. I didn't play into her hand and wouldn't pick her up, but I held her hand. Dada picked her up and asked for a hug, which she gave quickly. Daddy explained that she couldn't tell Dada no when he asked her to do something. My tender-hearted girl!

No pics. Had to try hard not to laugh and look SERIOUS!


  1. Ahhh - there will be many moments like these where you're cracking up inside and your child's world is crumbling because they think they're going to jail! Just wait. . .it's only just begun!!!

    BTW, she looks so mature in the new header!

  2. AAAHHH, the first of many. Such a joy to be the mother of a daughter with a will of her own

  3. awww :) I am impressed she stayed there with just a look from daddy! :) What a sweetie :)

  4. Laughing with you and wondering how long before she tests the waters again! I've been waiting for the spunk to inch its way out of quiet Miss Hannah... Hang on Mama, it's only just begun! Wait until it's you who has to put little Miss in her place. Not that I want her to get into mischief, but I can't wait to hear about that one!

  5. Awww... I don't know who to feel worse for... Hannah or you two. Good job guys. First of many.
