Try - I guess that's All I Ask

Last night Hallie was in full on destruction mode.  Not unusual.  But I was tired of it.  Most of her toys were in time out, and I had to keep taking other things away that she somehow got into her little hands.

So I said, rubbing my eyes, "Hallie, could you please not destroy something for the next two minutes?"

She looked at me very solemnly and said, "Try."

I guess that's all I can ask for.


  1. (I'm logged in as Jeff and too lazy to log out.) That is such a funny story! But then I'm said, because I think about how exhausted you must have felt!! She sure is a cutie though. Hang in there, Ames!!

  2. And you know what. I guess that's all that can be asked of you, as well, Amy.

    Just try. Doing is success. Regardless of the result. ;)

    Pretty sure Mary was bound to get a little frustrated and failed now and again and Jesus turned out okay, Savior-quality, even.

    Not saying Hallie has to save the world, just saying ... most kids come out okay ... and most moms get exhausted/frustrated ... and come out okay ... even holy ones.
