Princess night was in full swing last night at the studio. About 75 kids showed up, ranging in age from 4 to 12-ish. There was cookie decorating, tiara making, finger nail painting, make overs and dancing. What a party huh? Our own little princess got tuckered out around 7:30 (the party started at 6:30) and there wasn't much "Maeve-friendly" food. So we decided to go to Cracker Barrel for a late night dinner- BAD IDEA. Maeve was an absolute disaster- people were staring and I was shoveling food into my mouth as fast as possible so we could get out of there. Mid-way through our meal two old ladies came over and commented about how unhappy she was. I wanted to be like "YEAH thanks for pointing that out- I didn't notice!" UGH drives me crazy in those stressful moments when people decided to make comments about my unruly child.
Anyways Ryan and I are having some issues with disciplining Maeve. She is hitting, saying "no" to just about everything and she has this thing with slapping me across the face. When we tell her "NO" she laughs. Hmmm... what to do? I was told to flick her hands when she slaps me, but she then grabs my hand and laughs- like she wants to figure out how to flick too. Nothing really seems to faze her!
