Chris, I think I'm about 6 years old. It's really affecting my marriage, especially the supermarket tantrums. She hates those. (insert winking emoticon here: _____ )

Caity, the sad thing is that I uttered two of those three sentences yesterday. I'll let you, the denizens of the Internets decide which two.
