We have been having a few problems locating Lammy at bedtime. This creates serious drama because a certain little boy can not sleep with out his best friend, Lammy. After a search, we always find him but it delays bed time by 10-30 minutes. Last week, we started telling Jonah that if Lammy isn't in the bed when it is time for him to get in bed, then he doesn't get a story.
We have had lots of grace this whole week and let him go find Lammy. Last night, when it was time for bed, Lammy wasn't there. Dan started counting (TEN...NINE...EIGHT...) for Jonah to go find him but he wasn't even close to being back by the time the countdown was over. So, he didn't get a story.
Dan said his prayer went like this. "Dear God, thank you for Mommy, Daddy, Micah and Max. And God, please help Daddy not to count so fast and help me to run faster. Amen!"
