The Day After

P1050558 We survived Christmas. We even made it to church. Despite Carsyn’s ever effort to sabotage me. Carsyn is independent and stubborn. She is going through a testing stage right now. We’ve been out of town a lot and her schedule has been turned upside down. Carsyn likes to yell ‘No! No! Momma!’ and point her little finger at me when I ask her to mind me. Simple things. Wiping her hands off after eating. Changing her diaper. Taking a bath. It’s exhausting and disheartening. Sunday morning trying to get her ready was rough.



Thankfully she was a sweeter baby after church and we got some great photos. We’re going home and praying that this week at home will bring about better behavior. Tony and I are using time out to correct her behavior. I really just want to spank her, but I try to refrain and use that punishment for dangerous situations. Timeout hurts her feelings, but I’m not sure if she gets it yet.  Parenthood is hard.
