This is the kind of Sunday morning we've had,,,
Shirt: Old Navy
Haggard expression: Cecilia
Elizabeth wore Cecilia's old dress this morning, and because I promised a side-by-side-by-side comparison, here you go!
Cecilia on the left, Mary Claire (2 weeks ago) top right, Elizabeth bottom right (couldn't find the headband)
This was one of those weeks where I was thankful that the babies have enough head control for one of us to hold both at once, because Cecilia had to be taken out at least three times and it's impossible to yell at her while holding a baby because then the baby just cries and Cecilia thinks it's funny. But she thinks EVERYTHING is funny. I just don't know what to do about her... There is absolutely no punishment that makes her change her behavior, she just thinks everything is hilarious. What would you do? I'm at the end of my rope!
I'm beginning to think that the only thing we can do is tag-team Mass for a few weeks and see how it goes. I can take John Paul and a baby and Andrew always goes to an EF Mass later in the day anyway... Maybe if Cecilia sees that her behavior has been bad enough that she doesn't even get to go to Mass (and therefore doesn't get to wear a pretty dress or pretty shoes or her pink hat) she'll change her ways? So far she's treated other punishments as a reward...
Linking up my exasperated self to Fine Linen and Purple, where nobody else has a sociopath for a child (I hope).
