Completely agree about the "swat"-I see that in our near future. I didn't do it last night for 2 reasons:
1) I'm really out of it when I'm awakened like that in the night (I'm crazy when I have newborns & have to do that every night multiple times). Last night the idea didn't even hit me because I couldn't "think".
2) Because I don't think well in the middle of the night, I don't consider it wise to use that method when Dan is not here (and I could wait one night and he would be here-deployment's another issue). I think spanking is fine, but I firmly believe (as I know you guys do) it being done calmly and with a clear head. I could not have trusted myself with either last night.
But there will be no way I will allow a repeat performance. Night time is for sleeping!
