    After talking to my mom I decided to change this post around a little and I also deleted my disclaimer off of the bottom of the other post, but it doesn't mean that it's not going to come back up. I recently changed my settings on my blog to where anyone who read this could comment, blogspot or not. I meant for it to be for people like my dad and grampa who read this religiously but don't have one of their own. Apparently, I've got other "anonymous" people who read it but are to insecure to put their names when they make a comment. So because it's not worth me getting fired up over other peoples stupidity I'm going to change the settings back...if you want to make a comment and you are fortunate enough to have blogspot, go ahead, or you can leave a message with me on facebook.
    I do this blog for my family and loved ones that don't get to see Emily but still want to get daily updates on her. I do this for other people, not for me, and not for Emily. So to have someone post that I should use another method of discipline other than HITTING, I'm going to get a little "touchy". My "spankings" are anything but that. They are a little pat on a padded diaper bottom that let Emily know that I'm serious. I only do this after I've warned her twice already...the third time results in a swat (If I were to do this to Aaron it would be considered a love tap). And for all you who are curious, IT WORKS! It works amazing. She knows that mom means business and what she's doing isn't cute and that it needs to stop. I do this in the privacy of my own home so that I'm not embarrassed by her misbehaving in public or destroying things at someone elses house. You will thank me when she comes to visit you.
    I was originally quite irritated that I had to explain myself, and if you saw this before it was edited I apologize for being so frank about it. Again, I do this for the people that I love and by doing my post before, I was letting someone get the better of the entire purpose of this blog. Sorry.
WITH LOVE to everyone that I really do this for,

Be encouraged. We can tell you guys love your beautiful little girl. Don't allow a politically correct, but biblically illiterate person stop you from doing what is right.

Prov. 22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.
Prov. 23:13 Do not withhold discipline from a child;
if you strike him with a rod, he will not die.
Prov. 23:14 If you strike him with the rod,
you will save his soul from Sheol.

Luke 6:26 “Woe to you, when all people speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets.
