perhaps we should talk about what the word "important" means
At 2:30 am I was woken up by a little voice saying "mama, mama". I opened my eyes to see Bella standing beside me. She wasn't crying, but I reached out to hold her hand and asked her what was wrong. I always tell my kids if they ever wake up scared in the middle of the night, they can always wake us up and ask us to pray for them. (of course they can always come get us if they are sick, in pain, or have some sort of emergency too) I figured Bella was just frightened a bit by the wind and rain. Her response though to my question of what was wrong- "um, mama, when I watch the Golden Girls, I get dehydrated." Huh? Really, you woke me up at 2:30 to tell me that? She knows if she feels dehydrated she should drink water, and she also knows that she never EVER has to ask permission for water. It's probably needless to say I'm very tired today, and I think after nap time we're going to have a little chat about things that are important vs. things that fall into the you have got to be kidding me category.
