Mitchell got in big trouble last week. He HIT me! I was so dumbfounded. I took him straight to Mike who laid it on him pretty hard about how hitting women was one of the worst abuses a man can do.
I think it was all a show because his cousin was over. Mitch looks up to him because he's 2 years older and WAY cool. Mitch said he had to go to the bathroom and then told me he had an accident (which never happens). So I got him some new clothes and tried to beckon him into the hallway so Sean wouldn't be acutely aware of what happened and to not embarrass him. Mitch just sat there scowling at me, so I went to him and asked him if wanted to change in the living room or my bedroom. He got up, started to move, and then just whacked me.
Aye, aye, aye! My sweet, affectionate little boy showing some mean colors! He's usually incredibly sensitive and aware of others. He got grounded for a week from all video games and computer time. He felt awful immediately, too. I sure hope that attitude stays away! : /
