The Peace Corp has NOTHING on this job!
This is indeed "The Toughest Job You'll Ever Love". William is testing with a passion I only recognize as my coming from my 23 chromosomes. He is hitting, and almost hitting. He is pushing. He is flinging himself to the ground and screaming. He is refusing to comply with the simplest requests, and pushing my buttons like crazy! He knows he is not supposed to touch electrical cords and so he will look at them, say "No,No!", look at you and then touch them! It's like we are starting all over again when it comes to discipline. We were in a nice honeymoon phase and now it's like we are going through a rocky divorce! I think he is old enough for real time outs now, if they only last a minute. We figured out a spot to do it in finally after much debate. We didn't want to use his crib, since it is such a nice place for him right now and he loves it. We have a little chair and put it in the corner of our entryway. There is nothing he can hurt or play with there so I think it will work.... We shall see.
