sulky toddler
« on: July 20, 2006, 08:51:18 AM »
First he sniffs, next he bawls,
then he stalks away, sulking.
Then silence within the bedroom walls;
shedding tears and no more talking.

Restrain, my dear, from holding him
nor hasten a word to placate:
By yielding to his every whim
years of disciplining negate.

Time out, where's the naughty chair?
Jason, you know the drill -
Again, if you make me pull my hair,
Reverence for me I'll instill!

Morsels of food, i wiped from his face
long after the toddler's squeaked "sorry":
Signs of repentance, nary a trace,
he stamped his foot in his sister's curry.
