Katie, meanwhile, decided to do the stupid last night. She climbed onto the couch with Julie, which was just fine. Subsequently pushing her sister off onto the floor and smiling about it was not.
I checked to make sure that Julie was ok -- she was, babies are pretty resilient that way and she'd hit flat from a short fall. Then I grabbed Katie, tossed her over my shoulder, yelled at her, and spanked her on the way upstairs to dumping her unceremoniously in her crib. No real damage was done to her bottom through the diaper, but she was very upset by the indignity of the whole process. And the fact that her favorite blanket was still downstairs.
We will manage to teach Katie to be civilized before we are done.
Sooner will be better than later.
