Maddie at 8 with her 3 siblings.

I was gone this past weekend in Wyoming and Susan and my Mom were left with a temperamental Maddie. The word I received was that Maddie had a bad weekend filled with problems, which is why she didn’t get to post her Happy Monday video until after school. I told her that if she wanted to do it, she had to have a perfect report at school on the daily behavior chart her teacher fills out. ¬†Well for the first time in I can’t remember how long, Maddie aced it. She stepped up under pressure, so she wouldn’t let down her fans. Motivation is a powerful thing.

BONUS: Special guest greeting at the end. Maddie’s brother Sam gives a shout-out.
