Grace has been particularly difficult at supper times, eating very little, playing with her food and wanting to be excused long before she has had enough to eat.

Tonight she had hardly eaten anything and was about to climb off her chair, so I said to her, "Grace, if you climb off your chair before you are finished your chicken I'm going to give you a smack on the bum." So she stayed in her chair for a while, but never ate her chicken and eventually climbed down. I stopped her and lined her up for the consequences, and as I was swinging she says, "Ow!" (before the smack actually landed). Donné packs out laughing, Grace joins in and we all had a good laugh.

At least she ate her chicken.
