For the last 2 weeks Pudz has been so naughty. I've never been so stressed in my life. Nothing works on this kid. Take his toys away, he steals his little brothers. Put him in his bedroom, he turns it upside down. Give him a stern talking too, I cop attitude back. I used to get a smack on the ass as a kid, and when my parents laid down the law, I did as I was told. This kid is getting is getting out of control. I overheard a mum at playcentre (yes, I'm still going there) say he has ADD. Another mum asked me if he is autistic. WTF!!! No, he just needs a good smack on the ass and to learn some effing boundaries. Of course I can't say that. We have anti-smacking laws in this country that prevent responsible parents from disciplining their children. I think a good parent knows the difference between a smack and beating their child senseless. I don't enjoy disciplining my boy, but sometimes he goes too far. I was told "Oh, he's only 3. He doesn't understand right from wrong." Uh-huh. Yeah right.
I think he's bored so as of next week he's being enrolled in a proper kindergarten. He'll go 3 afternoons a week, and then next year he'll go 3 full days. I'm really excited for him. He's going to love it. I'm very scared though because I've never left him before. I think his recent behaviour is a sign that we both need a break from each other. I cried just filling out the enrolment forms, imagine how I'm going to be next Monday. T.K is going to take him there. I'm sad that I won't be there to settle him in but we both decided that he's more likely to accept Daddy leaving him there because Daddy goes to work everyday and still comes back. Makes sense, but really sucks.
I'm looking forward to spending one on one time with Mooch. He's 13 months already and took his 1st steps yesterday. I cried of course. I don't think I ever cried this much until I became a Mum. Now, I cry over the littlest things. Even the happy stuff.
Oh, and I think I may've found my 1st grey hair. I pulled it out of course and inspected it closely. I'm trying to convince myself that it's blonde :)
