So, DD1 didn't much like getting sent to her room this morning. Providing she has just come from playing in there, you'd think it wouldn't have been too traumatic. Wrong! Just to let the entire household know of her misery and hatred of her mother, Ms. Hissy McFitsalot had to slam her door. And she SLAMMED her door but good!
She slammed it so hard that the trim came off, the door was stuck, and husband had to pry it open and re-nail the door jam back together. And, being the awesome parent he is, he did wait to even let her know she would ever be released until the requisite 15 minute time out was over. Gotta love a guy who doesn't interrupt the discipline process a mom has begun!
I suppose we can be glad that it won't leave a scar on her tush. Right Kate? Because, and I can only hope this is true, the mental scars of your father hammering on the door frame to release you from your own stupidity - while your mother shouts "I told you so" in the background - aren't nearly as difficult to work through in therapy as an adult?
