took the kids to baskin robbins tonight. i will never figure out this discipline thing. i want to have such a good time with maddie that i have trouble stickin’ to my guns when i want to discipline. regardless of how bad she was at the dinner table, we still went out to get ice cream. on top of that, i had to put kenzo, the lullaby, her boom box and her cup of water all on time out tonight. then i had to remove her from her bed and stick her in our bed so that when she threw her fit she wouldn’t wake up her sister. that is so bad. i was about ready to throw it all in. it is truly weird how one day she can pull all the strings of your heart when the next she drives you to pull all the hair out of your head.

question of the day: are you a slow driver or a fast driver?
