Helping Her Brainstorm (Humor, Gratitude, Bedtime rituals)

At bedtime, as she was drifting off, I asked her, as I often do, for three wonderful things about her day. She was so tired that she was having trouble thinking of any. So, before she could answer…

Me – “Federer winning?”

She laughed.

She had begged to watch a children’s program while he played his semifinal match earlier in the day in Cincinnati. But that was a simple decision. Federer was playing, and the channel does not change when he is in a big match – which is any match he’s playing.

We had a great laugh about it. Then I moved on to helping her come up with a few normal ones.
