I'm sad, but I think I have to play bad cop now!

For as long as I can remember, as much as I hate to admit it, when all else fails, I resort to this threat..."Just wait until I'll tell your Dad!" ;-(
And here's how my one and only son, looks at me after that! 
So yes, this week, while I'm trying to be pretty and all, with my beauty posts, my son and I are like having a world war 3 in the house. I guess, I can't have everything...haha, if only my son would eat a lot in a jiffy, then I can be the happiest stay at home mom. But no, my son, being the picky eater that he is, spends more than an hour to finish a half-cup rice! And he does it in 15 minutes when we're eating a meal with his dad! Of course, I welcome the kiss and make up part after each day, but oh my, I think I'm putting my foot down. Today, I told my hubby, that I'll play the bad cop now, I'm not sure if I can hold my act together, but I'm hoping this will only be a momentary event.

I'm the First Boss now! Lol! ;-D
I guess there could be set backs in this parenting approach, but I'm more keen to this since I have the luxury of spending more play time with him, enough to make up for my uberdisciplinarian/ kill joy mom approach. So on those occasional times that Chase gets to spend time with his dad, it will mostly about having a great bonding time.

I get the same wrinkly forehead - puckered lip look from Ellie when I scold her and she's only turning 3 in November. hehe

That must be so difficult. I'm not a mom yet so I can't relate, good thing he is adorable!

I have to be the "Bad Cop" most of the time, in my home, too. It's rough but it's better than them getting away with every awful behavior. Many blessings to you!

I think its inevitable that a parent will have to be disciplinarian from time to time. Just shows how much you love your kid. =)

I can relate to this, I'm the spoiler. Like you, I am learning that I should be tougher

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
