Both my son and my daughter are getting bigger and bigger. My Jordan boy is 3 years old now and his little sister-Jasmine, is turning 2 at the end of the year. Both of them seems to be getting naughtier and naughtier as the days go by. Knowing that they are very precious to my wife and I, both our babies keep on getting on our nerves (most of the time in good ways of course). These two little babies are so naughty and energetic that they refuse to have their afternoon naps even though they are damn tired! SO???
So daddy-me, will have to be the bad guy! Well...I am always the bad guy. When I try to talk to them nicely, asking them to sleep...they will not listen at all. Both of them will smartly smile at you and continue to run around the house. Then they will be yawning and rubbing their eyes, yet they still refuse to sleep. After too much persuading, I will start to resort to some "brute force". I will carry both of them and force them to lay on the bed. After that I will scold them and even spanked them (the back of their palms). Last but not least I will give them a long, winding lecture. After that only they will be willing to sleep...like right now. :/
I can't blame them actually. I know they are too excited to play with each other and us. Then again their afternoon nap is very important for them, so that they will have enough rest to recover. And by sleeping more they will grow taller...not like their old man me. :p Usually after scolding and spanking them...I feel really bad. But as the saying goes one have to be cruel to be kind right? Even I have to be bad to make them good...I will do it even at my expense! Daddy will always love the both of you that's why I am being strict. :p
