Daddy Helps


Sorry it's been so long.  I have been crazy busy with school.  But I thought I'd share this little sweet memory.

I usually read to the boys a little book before they get in bed, say their prayers, and then I read at least a chapter of scriptures to get them to relax and stay in bed after that.  It's been a wonderful addition to our bedtime routine.  But I'm always the one to do it.  Jimmy isn't much of a reader.

Lately with school, I'm so tired.  I feel guilty because I feel like things are getting behind - my house cleaning, my kids, my homework, my husband's needs - everything is suffering!  There's too much of everything for anything to be done completely.  Anyway, it's been tough.

One night I got home from school later then usual.  I usually get home right at bedtime but I was a bit later this time.  I got home and my husband had cleaned the house and vacuumed for me.  I love the feeling of coming home and that's been done! :)  Then I went in to say goodnight to the kids, expecting them to be asleep already.  Jameson was.  Zachy wasn't.  I came into the room and he said: "Mommy!  Daddy read the scriptures!"

It made me so happy.
