Tonight we put Evelyn to bed and she spent a good deal of time saying she needed to go potty to get out of going to bed. When she finally went to bed, Christy and I went downstairs to eat and Evelyn started screaming and crying, calling for us.
It sounded very much like a stalling cry. But after 15 minutes the crying grew more intense and she was clearly saying she needed something. I went upstairs and she had tears coming down her face.
“I need say my blessing and thank God for Miss Sarah and Miss Katie and Miss Joyce and Miss Nancy.”
I kind of chuckled and she got very serious. “I *need* to say my blessing, Daddy.”
So we did.
And Evelyn drifting off to sleep.
