How Could We be Angry?

Remember this picture? (July 2009)
Last night Carrie was being a little terror about going to bed. I don't even remember the specifics, but it wasn't pretty. We'd reached a tipping point and just said, "Goodnight", shut the door and let her scream.

She was calling out, "Mommy! Daddy!" etc... but we both knew we were too steamed to rationally deal with her. The next thing we heard her shout/cry?..... "DADDY!! WE FORGOT TO READ SCRIPTURES!!!"

It was sad and pathetic and adorable..... I don't know if it was just a rouse to get to stay up for a few minutes longer, but I'm thinking probably not. I feel really proud of us for instilling that habit in her already. Although most days she fights it, squirming, wiggling, and whining about repeating a verse.... I think deep down she likes it....

We immediately went into her room, scriptures in hand, and read together as a family. And she went right to sleep.....
