Discipline

Today my kids were the worst that they have ever been. The worst part was that we had just reached the front of the line at the post office when they decided to display their sinful nature. Even after pointing out that they were sinning and giving them a smack on the behind their behavior did not change. In fact, it escalated. Now, if I had thought it through I would have realized that I needed to leave, front of the line or not. Of course, I was frazzled and not thinking clearly now that my kids were obviously out of control. When we did reach the counter the kids were screaming and crying. It seemed like the transaction was taking forever. (Do they really have to ask you if you need stamps when they see you practically every other day?)
When we were done I carried them out the door and informed that they would be disciplined when we got home. I cried all the way home. I now realize that I had better just leave next time before things get out of control.
