I have said it before and I will say it again.... I like to plan ahead, way ahead. I saw a message board on a book regarding discipline and could not pass it up. Someday I can come back and read this entry and laugh at the fact that none of the techniques worked. Neal and I read some of the book on our way to the transplant games this weekend. It focuses on empowering your kid with self confidence and the ability to make decisions. To be honest, my parents could have written the book. They always treated my sister and I as adults and secretly trained us to make the right decisions. The chapter we read was about giving your child choices. The choices must both work for you. A lot of the choices the book suggested sounded ridiculous and the book even stated that. Little Johnny, do you want to have fun going to the potty or not have fun? Heck who doesn't want to have fun going to the potty! The book also stated I could use this technique on my husband. Neal, Do you want to rub my shrek feet for an hour or an hour and a half tonight? So far, I have to say, it has worked pretty well!

Doctor appointment tomorrow. I think they are going to check if I am dialated although it does not really matter at this point. It will be nice to hear the babies heart beats. I think our girl has repositioned herself as I am not feeling her head like I used to. It is hard ensuring you feel each baby every day when you don't know where they are.

I know you are busy now but someday I will ask you what book this is. I think it may come in handy!
So happy for you both!
