Don't Go To Sleep Mad...

I'll tell ya what - forget teenage years... I may not survive the pre-teen years!

You could say there was a little "power struggle" at bedtime tonight.

We still prayed, held hands, hugged, loved, etc... but something was still off.

About 20 minutes later I heard a tip-toe come up the steps and ease into my office.

It was this big girl right here. We grabbed a jacket and went out on the front porch to talk.

She said: "I'm sorry, daddy."

I told her I absolutely accepted her apology and forgave her - and then I asked her what compelled her to come upstairs...

She said:

"You told me we should never go to bed mad at each other... and I was still a little mad at you."
I love her honesty.

I love that she DOES hear me sometimes when I talk!

But more than any of that... I just love her.

Total, unconditional, full throttle loving of this girl.

We hugged, we smiled... and she told me she was so sleepy.

That she came to me before letting sleep win means the world to me.

Meron... you gained a ton of respect from your daddy tonight for doing the hard stuff...

And nobody went to bed mad!
