Peter has officially established his first bad habit. Biting his lips. I hope he did not pick this up from watching Mommy picking at hers, but either way, it's not a good one. The fist time I caught him doing this I put a band-aid over his mouth, but he looked so funny, we both ended up laughing until we both were in tears. So, I told him that the next time he picks his lips that he will have to get a spanking. Well, tonight was that 'next time'. When I asked if he had picked his lips, he said 'yes. . .but just a little bit' So, I had to explain to him that disobeying is disobeying no matter how 'big or small' it is. I did, however, commend him for telling the truth (which is a new struggle we are having with our 3 year old). While talking to Daddy tonight (who's at work) to say goodnight, this is what I hear Peter saying. . . "Hi Daddy! I stayed dry ALL day today, but there is one problem. . .I bit my lip. And I got a spanking, but I'm not gonna pick MY lips ever again! Goodnight Daddy, love you too, bye!" I loved how he openly admitted his faults by saying 'but there's one problem' - what a kid!
