Do you ever have to fight the urge to laugh when you're disciplining your child?

Sometimes what my DD does is so CUTE or funny, but I have to follow through.

  • I think it is so funny when my yougest is not listening to her dad since he swears that he can get her to do anything. He gets so frustrated and that makes it even funnier. Now the oldest does it and I do not find it so cute, since she listens to no one.

  • there was one time I spanked my 3 year olds butt for something when she was like 2 and sh grabs her butt jumping up and down saying her butt it was to funny how she was grabbing her butt lol. My nephew I can't help, but laugh when my brother in law tells him if he doesn't stop he is going to get a spanking. The reason is because he will tell him I am going to spank your butt and sometimes he will say no my butt lol or sometimes he will say no mommy spank butt lol. I think the reason is because my sister doesn't spank him very hard (he wears a diaper) and which daddy spanks a little harder than mommy lol. He is to funny at times lol
