Last night as Pat and I were putting Abby to bed, she asked for a song like she usually does. After singing her favorite, "I Am a Child of God", I asked, "How about this one since tomorrow's Father's Day? " and started to sing, "I'm so glad when Daddy comes home..." only to have her smack her hand over my mouth and say, "No Mom! It's a surprise!"
She proceeded to whisper to me (all within ear shot of Daddy) that the Primary was going to be singing that song for Father's Day, so "we can't sing it or it will ruin the surprise." It was so cute.
This morning, Abby kept reminding us not be late for church because on Mother's Day, we actually missed the kids singing! She was really upset about that. I felt so bad. (In my defense, I had no idea the Primary was going to be singing "Mother, I Love You" as prelude music that Sunday.) We didn't want to make that mistake again so we were rushing to make sure we got there in a timely manner. Abby was so excited to go up and sing with the Primary, even though it's only our second week in this ward. She could hardly sit still during sacrament meeting.
When it was finally time to for the Primary to go up front, she was all smiles as she sang and looked out at us in the congregation.
