All you can do...

No matter how structured and intentional your parenting is, sometimes your kids will throw you for a curveball.  Tonight, my 6 year old lost her mind.  She was overly tired and had a major post-bedtime meltdown.  She said she was scared and tired but wouldn't go to bed.  Sometimes all you can do is pray and be firm but loving.

I finally got her back upstairs and into her bed and I haven't heard a peep since.  Being overly tired can make even the best of kids act like a total nut.  But we love her and we all have bad days.  I'm glad I go through days like this because it reminds me that we all need a big helping of grace some days.  I know I do.
