2:13 am. Beckett seemed to turn a corner today. He and Scarlett got into a fight and, for some reason, he seemed to realize that I wasn’t always taking her side. He seemed appreciative of my attempts at fairness and, when he was leaving, he stretched out both arms to offer me a hug – something he almost never does. I was deeply touched and lifted him off the ground, which made Scarlett laugh hysterically.
K. returned from visiting her mother. Scarlett was here so we couldn’t be as affectionate as I wanted. Mandy was supposed to pick up the kids at 4 pm (I was supposed to start shooting at that time) but she didn’t actually show up until 7:30 pm, which made the shoot harder. Because K. had to babysit Scarlett, she wasn't available to record sound.
