From time to time on that rare occasion, when necessary, the kids will get a spanking (usually with the wood spoon). Morgan tends to be the one who responds best to this form of discipline. So today she comes skipping in the house from school and hands me an activity book with a sticker and in a very matter of fact fashion tells me it's for daddy. It reads, "Hands are not for Hitting." They did this last year when Isaac was in Kindergarten. Any time Isaac would get a spanking last year he would proclaim, "Hands are for loving and hugging, not for hitting." It worked for him probably the first time. Then we started to tell him that hands are also for disciplining!!! Got to love their logic!
Rick proudly wore the sticker the rest of the day!
Family of 5! Begins with the happy couple, Rick and Jami, (aka Mom and Dad) trying to be the best parents we can be to our 3 adorable children. Isaac who is 7 and enjoys swimming and playing video games. He is our negotiator, smart boy and tender hearted. Also a talented pianist. Morgan who is 6 loves to swim, dance, sing and dress up. She is definately our Drama Queen/Princess. And Luke who is 3 enjoys swimming, watching movies, learning new things and enforcing rules. He is always happy and suprises us with the things he comes up with. As a family we love to spend time on the lake on our boat, at the river, swimming pool and on the beach. We love to be near water!
