I am pretty sure that if you looked up the word defiant in the dictionary, Cailin would be glaring right at you in lieu of a definition.
She is all angry eyes, crossed arms, stomped feet, and rude voice. I know, I know — this is typical of most six year olds.
You need a spanking not a divorce
I have only feared for her life once, which is pretty good, all things considered. My husband is usually more patient with her — I think because he spends less time with her and has more patience in general.
He will sit her down, have a conversation, blah blah blah. But then… Caleb had a bad day at work, and Cailin had been fighting me all day. He could tell I was mad when he got home, so he was helping with Cailin.
After dinner, he brought out dessert. We finished, and Cailin asked to get up. Caleb said sure, just take the plates in. So she grabbed her plate and went to the kitchen. You take your own dishes in.
Homemaking, family, and food
This is when I got nervous. I looked at him and could see him getting angry. This is when I was scared I was about to lose a daughter.
Caleb just looked at her and asked her to repeat herself. She did, almost verbatim.
How to spank your husband? best 5 ways with step by step guide
Caleb told her that was fine and to go make sure she was ready for school the next day. I sat there silently, trying to figure out what was going to happen next. Guess whose clothes were inside? She trudged out to the dryer, opened it, and immediately started complaining.
What to do when you and your husband don’t agree about spanking
Oh. If only you had the capacity to think about things you say.
She complained the whole time, but it was so very worth it when she finally finished and looked at Caleb and said, ok, Daddy. They, of course, had another long conversation about how family helps out, we share chores, etc.
I keep going back and forth on how I really feel about her attitude. On the one hand, it drives me crazy.
More in life
On the other, the kid sure knows how to stand up for herself. But on the third yes, third hand. Go with it.
I have no idea how to handle such a crazy attitude. I know everyone says this, but I was NOT like that as a. And you know what?

I was spanked twice. I wish I knew her secret!
