Last Sunday night Addison got a hold of John's iPhone and promptly zoned out and started watching cartoons. We gave her a 2 minute warning and then a 30 second warning and John took the phone away. To say she got upset would be an understatement, she went CRAZY! You would have thought we told her we were taking all of her toys away or something. John decided she needed to be put into a time-out, a decision I fully supported but one that we don't use often so she only has a vague idea what it is. Anyways, it didn't really phase her and the tears were flowing as hard as they were the second John took away the phone. So being the nice mother I am, I decided I need to save her and we needed to move past this...and it went a little something like this...
Mom: "Addison, when you are done crying you can go take a bath."
Addison: "No, I have a couple more cries"
Mom: Holding back the laughter -- "Oh really, just a couple more...well it's bathtime, let's go!"
Oh Addison...she really does have it rough!

We celebrated NYE big time last night at the Dougherty House...or something like that?!?
John braved the temps and grilled us some yummy steak for dinner and then we all sat down as a family and watched Finding Nemo. I'm happy to report that Addison actually watched about 90% of the movie. The constant stream of snacks probably helped...popcorn and cookies and icecream. :)
A wonderful way to ring in the new year!!!
