Trees and Lullabies

Today's not-so-favorite moments included:

. . . Joy falling out of a tree, then asking me WHY she fell out of the tree. She was totally unsatisfied with my answer because she doesn't comprehend the concept of getting distracted.

. . . Joy waking up with a barking cough hours after bedtime. Time to get out the humidifier.

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . after we got the humidifier going, I asked Joy if she wanted me to sing her a song. She requested "We Thank Thee, O God, For a Prophet" and I started quietly singing as I rubbed her back. I had scarcely sung two lines when her eyes drooped closed and she fell back asleep. Sweet girl.
