As a follow-up to Amelia's acting up post,  Tom and I talked with Amelia on Thursday night and struck a deal with Amelia. If she went to camp on Friday and had a good day (no accidents, no sassing), she could have a date with the parent of her choice on Saturday. It's funny how motivation can change behavior...

Friday went off without a hitch. When she woke up on Friday, Tom reminded her of the deal. I dropped her off at camp with a big hug and kiss. She wore the tie-dye shirt that she had made on Wednesday, frolicked with her friends, ate pizza, and had a great time. Katie got to enjoy her Abrakadoodle class.

Last night, Tom's sister watched the girls so we had a date night. (Yay!) We caught an early showing of  The Dark Knight  We enjoyed it a great deal. It was a whole lot of movie, but it was probably the best superhero movie we've seen in a while. (To be fair, we did not get a chance to see Iron Man  while it was in the theaters, which I desperately wanted to see.)

This morning, Tom and Amelia took off early for their "date."  They had breakfast together at the Original Pancake House, then stopped by their respective toy stores (Home Depot and Toys R Us). While they were off, Katie and I slept in til 9 A.M..  Ahhh, I love when a plan works out. :)
