Payback is a *itch

Carson was such a mess yesterday. He was pushing every button he could on both Nathan and me. I was at my wits end and then he shoved Nathan who was quietly playing with a puzzle and grabbed the alligator shaped piece from his hand. I was telling Carson to "Come here right now!" and he ran from me. Nathan chased him and when Nathan grabbed for the piece, Carson grabbed his wrist hard and grunted/yelled at him. I got up and took the piece from Carson and handed it to Nathan. Carson was then put in time out. I sat back onto the couch just as Nathan headed for Carson with the puzzle piece.

Now Nathan often feels badly when Carson's in time out and tries to sit with him and comfort him.

This time was not for comfort...he walked over to Carson's time out spot and whacked him right in the mouth with the wooden alligator. Now of course this sent Nathan to time out as well, but it also sent me to the kitchen covering my mouth trying not to laugh while getting a wet rag to clean Carson's blood covered hands and face.

It was wrong. Very wrong. We do not at all condone hitting in our home, but I couldn't help thinking it was a bit deserved.

oh and the fighting has begun! At least his brother might think twice next time about taking the alligator puzzle piece.
