I was in the kitchen when I heard a real cry from Ethan. I say that because Ethan is always whining and throwing tantrums. I know immediately he was in pain. So, I went into the living room and found Ethan laying on his back on the floor with Peyton sitting beside him. He wouldn't tell me what Peyton did so I stood him up to examine him. I found my cell phone beside him and knew that was the source of the fight. I turned him around and saw a wet teeth ring on the back of his shirt. I lifted up his shirt and was horrified. This is by far the worst bite we have had. So, I reacted pretty strongly. I smacked my sweet Peytie in the mouth, put him in bed for 2 min, then put him in time-out for 2 min. I also gave him a HUGE guilt trip. We talked about how he hurt his bubby and made him cry. We also talked about how we do NOT bite in this house. We also talked about it throughout the evening.
I was so furious when I realized what he had done. I showed daddy and grandma. Each time I showed them I made sure Peytie was right there. When they saw it and asked what happened he would say that he bit Ethan then ,"No biting!" I know he got the picture. I'm glad he got it. Thankfully, we haven't had biting problems. Hopefully it will stay that way.
