When it comes to laying down the law and being the disciplinarian in the family are you the good cop or the bad cop?

Love this QOTW! I am usually the bad cop - the disciplinarian. DH will also discipline when needed, so he isn't a complete softy. When it comes to things like brushing teeth, going to bed, reading "one more book", etc. they kids will often beg and plead with him whereas I can say "Go brush your teeth." or "Eighty-seven books are enough." and they listen and know now to push. Of course, my level of patience is a bit lower than DH's, so he probably doesn't mind!
