I retreated to the kitchen and let out an, "Arrrg! I'm going to lose my mind!"
Josh strolled in and said, "You know Mom, that was wrong of you to smack him last night."
"Yes it was, very wrong of me. A huge mistake and I regret it very much. I hope to never do that again, and I hope Bug will forgive me." I replied.
Josh nodded and walked away, as if he just wanted to be sure I knew he saw what happened and what he thought of it. As if to be sure I knew I'd have big brother to contend with if I thought that type of behavior was acceptable. He was being sure someone spoke up for Bug's rights.
He makes me so proud.
