dd wasnt listening. after about an hour of trying to get her to lay down for bed (bed time is always a problem) I sat next to hear and explained that it wasnt time for tv or toys and the lights had to go off. Well not long after that she started jumping on the bed. Again i went in a gave her a warning and layed her back down, kissed her head and left. this went on for over an hour. To get to the point, I warned her that she would get a spanking if she didnt lay down and get to sleep. I NEVER spank, just say it for effect. Tonight, I spanked and am in tears. I didnt spank hard you just a tap over the pullup. However, she was a tad but pink(like an irritation).
Please help. I cant believe i did that. That is not me. I just can't deal with her. I love her with all of my heart, but she is hyper and devilish. Please help!

It obviously didn't work for you. Even if it got her to do what you wanted her to do...it didn't sit well with you. So don't do it again. You will have lots of show downs with your daughter. When you feel like you are banging your head against the wall over and over again - don't do it. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. I have to remember this with my son everytime he climbs out of his bed, opens his door, and looks for me b/c he wants to be up or have me in the room with him. So I have to think outside the box when it comes to getting him to do what I need him to do. But if it hurts her (and it did) and it hurts you - don't use a punishment that neither one of you are okay with.

You can put it in the microwave on high for 30 sec. Or more just keep checking on it. It will bubble which is normal. And once it's warm make her drink it. She may not like the taste but it's worth a shot.
