In Sickness & Health
When you are disrespectful and don't follow rules we have to figure out a way to punish you, but also teach you at the same time to understand what you are being punished for and how you can prevent it from happening again. There are times that we restrict you from television all together, or just your favorite shows. There are times that we send you to your room to think about your actions. There are times that we take away your video games, and then there are times when we have to hand out the spankings.
When you are playful, we enjoy chasing you around the house in circles. We enjoy wrestling with you, and being your bad guys. We enjoy going out back and playing a little soccer or flag football.
Then, when you are sick, we don't enjoy the fact that you are unhappy, and can't get comfortable.Your head hurts, your throat hurts, your whole body hurts, you are coughing and running a fever. We hate that you have to miss out on all the fun you could be having at school or with us because you have to rest. We hate that you cant enjoy your meals like you usually do. We hate that you have to take the one medicine that you absolutely refuse to take to make you better. But, we don't hate that we love to get to hold you when you are feeling ill. We love how you sleep beside us and cuddle because it makes you a little more comfortable. We melt when we see your poor little eyes well up with tears because you are hurting. We love the big warm hugs and kisses we get to give you to help comfort you. We love being able to just have you sit on our laps or right beside us on the couch and watch your favorite shows until you finally fall asleep.
We love you, and are glad that you are ours to have & to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, (thanks to allowance), in sickness & health, to love & to cherish til death do us part.
