Madison woke up one morning and was playing around in her crib. She finally pulled herself up on the side of the crib and began to cry. It was a familiar routine. Mommy came and got her out of the crib. She made sure that Madison had on a dry pull-up for the morning and then took her downstairs to breakfast.
Mommy put Madison in her booster seat and gave her some oatmeal and a cup of peaches to eat. She gave her a toddler spoon and a sippy cup. Madison was dressed in a t-shirt and a pull-up. Mommy had not even remembered to put a toddler-sized bib on Madison. No, Mommy was in a hurry to catch up on some cleaning that she had fallen behind on, lately.
Mommy said, “Here Maddie, now you eat your food while Mommy goes and does the laundry. Be a good girl for Mommy, ok?”
Madison wondered why Mommy always insisted on her being a good girl and really didn’t know the difference but responded with an, “OK Mommy!”
Mommy went and started sorting through the baby clothes and the diapers and the grown up clothes and she was amazed at how quickly her laundry had piled up, especially, the diapers! Mommy was determined she was going to start working very hard on potty training Madison, if she could find the time in her busy week.
Madison played with her food. She took the peaches and squshed them between her fingers. She ate some of her food. She would hold the spoon with one hand and then take her other hand and dip her fingers into the mush and then squeeze it and try to get some of it into her mouth. The oatmeal was everywhere and so were the peaches. Madison continued working with the food as diligently as she could.
Mommy finished getting the load of clothes into the washer and came back out to check on her baby.
“MADISON! WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING?”
Madison jolted at her Mommy’s yells and looked scared. But then said, “Mommy, I eat.”
Mommy retorted, “I don’t think you have eaten anything, young lady. Why is your food everywhere? It is all over you, it is all over the table, it is all over the floor? Why are you not eating the way I taught you?”
Madison did not remember being taught how to eat. She continued to play in her slop of mess. Mommy had enough. She got a wet washcloth and took it over to clean Madison up. Madison jerked her head this way and that to get away from the old rag.
“Madison Taylor Walker, be still right this instant, missy! Mommy is not through with you.”
It took Mommy a good while to get Madison cleaned up but finally she did. She still had much cleaning to do. She put Madison in the living room at the coffee table with some crayons and a coloring book.
“Now Madison, I have some work to do. Why don’t you sit here and color me a pretty picture?”
Madison smiled at her Mommy. Mommy left the room, again, to do some chores that needed to be done. Madison colored a picture of a kid flying a kite but then got curious about the blue crayon. Madison slid the crayon in her mouth and began to suck and chew on it. She was not sure of the taste but everything went in Madison’s mouth.
Madison toddled over to the wall that went underneath the staircase. She had brought three of the crayons with her. She had brought a purple, black and red crayon with her. She began to draw on the wall. She drew a picture of her Mommy, of Madison and of a puppy dog. Madison had so much fun coloring the wall. Then Madison decided to go back to watch television so she toddled back to where the coffee table was.
Mommy came into the room and immediately saw the disaster, “MADISONNNNNNNNNN TAYYYLLORRRR WALKKKERRRRRRR!!!! Mommy is disappointed in you young lady. Why did you color the wall?”
“Mommy don’t you like my pitcher? It’s you and me and a puppppieeee.”
“Mommy don’t you like my pitcher? It’s you and me and a puppppieeee.”
“No, I do not like it Madison. We do not color on the wall, do we? Where do we color? We color in the coloring book, not the wall!”
Mommy scooped Madison up and put her on the changing table. She noticed that Madison had bits of blue in her mouth. “Madison, I just don’t know what to do with you.” Mommy smacked Madison’s inner thighs a couple of times and Madison cried just a bit but nothing too serious.
Just at that moment, the doorbell rang. Mommy placed Madison temporarily in her crib until she could find out who was at the door. Madison cried while she was in her crib because she didn’t like to be left alone.
Mommy went to the door, “Who’s there?”
“It’s me, Sis,” came the reply of Madison’s Auntie Bella.
“Oh hi, Sis, do come in. Well, you might not want to… it’s a disaster zone in here.”
“What is the matter, you look like you have been roughed up.”
Well Sis, honest truth is that I am not feeling well, I am behind on my chores and errands and Madison the terrible two year old has happened, today. Just come look at my walls! She thinks she colored a pretty picture but she colored my walls for heaven’s sake.”
“Oh my goodness! That little monster. I tell you what sis. Well have you spanked Madison for that?”
“I gave her two little smacks but nothing of importance. I am just not well enough to keep up with her today.”
“Well, let me take her for the day. I will give her a good spanking on your behalf and tend to her. That way you can take care of yourself and get your house back in order. How does that sound?”
“Oh that would be great Sis. I sure hate to put Madison off on you. She is really getting to be a handful.”
“Oh don’t worry about us. Plus, by the time she is settled, she will get a spanking and by the time she’s settled from that, she’ll be ready for a nap.”
“Oh, alright then. Let me warn you, she’s a mess as in dirty as well. Let me go get her. Madison! “
Madison was sitting in her crib playing with her toys having forgotten that her Mommy had left her. Her face was a little red from crying after her Mommy though. Madison sprung to life when she heard her Mommy and pulled up on the side of the crib.
“Madison, Auntie Bella is here to take you to her house. You are going to spend the day with her while I get some cleaning done. And now, thanks to your naughtiness, I will be cleaning the walls as well.”
Madison reached for her Mommy. She was happy to be going to Auntie Bella’s house because that’s where Mannah lived. And Mannah was Madison’s big cousin that played with her.
Mommy grabbed Madison and looked at her sternly and said, “Now, you are already in trouble young lady so you better be a good girl for your Auntie Bella, do you understand me?”
“Yes Ma’am,” came a soft reply.
“Well here Auntie Bella. Here is Maddie’s diaper bag and Maddie herself. I do hope you have a decent time with her.”
“Well, we’ll get things straightened out,” Auntie Bella winked at her sis.
“Come on Madison, let’s get you into the car so we can go to my house, alright?”
Auntie Bella put Madison into the car seat and buckled her in. She then got in the car and buckled herself in.
“How’s Madison doing today?”
This should have been obvious. Madison was still dressed in her t-shirt and pull-up with sweats pulled over them for going out into the cold weather. Her t-shirt still bore the evidence of blue crayon and oatmeal and peaches. Her mouth still had bits of blue crayon in places like between her lips and teeth. But if Auntie Bella couldn’t tell then Madison wasn’t going to volunteer. Madison just continued to suck on her pacifier. The drive seemed to put Madison to sleep even though the drive was very short. Perhaps, Madison had been too busy this morning.
Finally, they arrived at Auntie Bella’s house and Auntie Bella got Madison out of the car. “Come on young lady. Let’s go inside.”
Madison slowly woke up and saw that she was at her Auntie Bella’s house.
Auntie Bella paid Madison no attention.
Maddie figured that Mannah would come out eventually but didn’t call her again.
Auntie Bella sat Maddie’s stuff down and then sat the young girl in her lap.
“Madison. Mommy tells me that you were a very naughty girl this morning. Mommy says that you colored on the wall. And look at you, you are a mess. I believe I see blue slobber pouring from your mouth, open that mouth and let me see your tongue!”
Madison opened her mouth and blue crayon was everywhere.
“Madison, you do not eat crayons and you do not color on your Mommy’s or Auntie Bella’s or anyone’s walls, do you hear me?”
Madison was confused. She thought she had come to Auntie Bella’s house to play and now she was getting fussed at.
“Madison. Your Mommy is not well today so she sent you here for the day. And since she is not well and could not spank you properly, I shall do so.”
“Nooooooo Auntie Bella, noooooo!”
“Madison is not going to do you any good to tell me no. You deserve a spanking. You need to learn that when your Mommy or I think that you need a spanking it is for your own good.”
“Now Madison, you might tell your Mommy ‘No,’ but that is not going to work with me young lady. Now let’s pull those sweat pants completely off and take down your pull-up as well. This will be your first spanking from me but I can guarantee you that it will not be your last. Now, here let me help you over my lap.”
Madison was terrified of her Auntie Bella’s voice. Auntie Bella had always been so loving with her and had never ever spanked her before. But she supposed that’s the way it had to be since Mannah often was spanked by Madison’s Mommy. Madison felt herself being undress and began to cry with her paci in her mouth.
“You will not be needing that, Madison. Hand me your paci. When girls are naughty they don’t get to keep their pacis. Now I should start you off with a small hand spanking to warm your bottom up.”
Auntie Bella first rubbed Madison’s bottom with her hand. Then she fired five rapid smacks to each side of the little girl’s bottom. After that, she waited a second and applied three quick and sharp spanks to each globe. Madison had already began to cry but Auntie Bella was just warming her up.
Auntie Bella reached for her hairbrush. In this, she was just like her sister, a hairbrush was the best way into a little girl’s heart. Auntie Bella started at the little girl’s right cheek and would give several swats that all seemed to go in one spot, then she’d switch to a left sit spot, then to a right thigh, followed by a left butt cheek, then to the right sit spot and then to the left thigh and then in different spots but culminating on the tops of the cheeks.
Madison screamed and cried through the entire spanking. Madison did not like that Auntie Bella had somehow managed to hit every single piece of her backside during this spanking. Madison was utterly tired and defeated. She longed for the spanking to be over. She cried for her Auntie Bella to stop and she even cried for her Mommy. She was reminded that Mommy was at home and Madison was in Auntie Bella’s hands.
Finally the spanking stopped. Auntie Bella sat Maddie back up in her lap but did not replace her pull-up or her pants. “Now Madison, I do not want to hear of you giving your Mommy trouble. I better not hear of you coloring on the walls ever again, do you hear me young lady?”
Through tons of tears Madison uttered a, “Yes Ma’am.”
“Good. Now Auntie Bella loves Madison and wants her to be a good girl. Auntie Bella also knows that Madison is young and is learning. But this is how you learn, Madison. Your Mommy and I will spank you when you need it.”
Madison continued to cry and even cried out again, “Mannnnahhhhh. Mannnnahhhh!”
“Mannah? Oh Amanda is at school. She won’t be home until after I have returned you to your Mommy’s house. You don’t get to play with Amanda because you have done a very bad thing today. Only good girls get to play. Now Madison, I know that you are young and you will be getting many spankings and that is one thing but you have done something that really has upset your Mommy and that is why you got such a harsh spanking.”
Madison continued to cry.
“Alright, here let’s put your pull-up back on and your pants. And then we’ll cuddle.”
Madison slipped her legs into the pull-up and pants while holding on to her Auntie Bella. Madison wanted to do exactly what Auntie Bella told her to do and nothing but what she told her to do.
Auntie Bella scooped Madison up into her arms and began to love on her. She rubbed her back and held on to her tightly. Madison cried and cried but Auntie Bella loved on her back. Madison tucked her hands up under herself and continued to cry. Auntie Bella rubbed Madison’s back and stroked her hair.
Much time passed and it was time to go back to Mommy’s house. Auntie Bella packed Madison’s things and loaded the car. She snapped Madison into her car seat and drove her back home. Madison sucked on a bottle on the way back home and fell back to sleep.
When Auntie Bella arrived at the door, she carried a sleeping Madison in the house. Mommy was sitting in her favorite recliner and asked for Madison to be put into her arms. Auntie Bella did as asked. Mommy wanted to know the details of Madison’s first spanking with Auntie Bella. Auntie Bella told her the details. Mommy smiled at her Sis.
“Thanks for taking care of her today. I got much done that I needed to. I have to say that I missed my baby but I couldn’t have done it without you. I think it is time to paint the walls anyway but I got most of it off. The cool thing is that I took a picture and have placed it in Madison’s baby book so that she can see, when she’s older, that the picture she drew made me proud… it really is pretty.”
“Oh Sis, you are such a softy. But I am glad that you take pride in your daughter’s artwork! I don’t think if Amanda had done that, I would have taken a picture… but then, I probably would have spanked her and not have thought about it. I guess it is good I had Madison for the day.”
“Yes. I thought about it later and said well, who knows if she will ever draw such a cute picture again and label it as Mommy, Madison and a puppy! It kind of looks like scribble mostly but she named everything. So, did you get the blue crayon out of her mouth?”
“Yes, I’m afraid I took a picture and applied it to her bottom!”
The two sisters laughed. Then Auntie Bella decided she better get home before Amanda arrived home from school. Auntie Bella and Mommy said their good-byes and Auntie Bella went out the door without her Sis getting up.
Madison lay in her Mommy’s arms, sound asleep. She didn’t know that she was in her Mommy’s arms perhaps, but it sure seemed as if she snuggled tighter. Mommy kissed Madison on the forehead and rubbed her face. She would always love her Maddie no matter what.
