Mean Mommy

I make Baby K cry.

It's happened three nights in a row.

I've settled us on the bed in her room, nursing her to sleep. She'll pull away and pinch me.

I say "We don't pinch our mom, Baby K." sternly and she'll get all sad and cry.

It makes me sad. I feel bad, but I've thought about it and it's something I have to do. Pinching isn't nice and she's old enough that she needs to know what is nice and what isn't. She needs to know that pinching hurts and we don't pinch.

That doesn't change the fact that her quivering bottom lip and soft cries don't break my heart, knowing that it was my words that brought them on. I hope she learns quickly to not pinch.
