Today's time-out

I got into a battle royal last night with Maddie over which one of us was going to put the lid back on the dog food container. "Pick your battles" is a motto I try to live by, but sometimes I find myself so far entrenched into these stand-offs that by the time I realize how totally ridiculous they are it's too late to back down. It lasted a good half hour, with me cajoling and her falling on the floor yelling "NO!" and then laughing and running away. It's slightly depressing to lose out on a battle of wills to a not-quite-two-year-old.

Here is today's gossip-y time-out. Happy Thursday!
