President Hinckley has counseled parents: “Read to your children. Read the story of the Son of God. Read to them from the New Testament. Read to them from the Book of Mormon. It will take time, and you are very busy, but it will prove to be a great blessing in your lives as well as in their lives. And there will grow in their hearts a great love for the Savior of the world, the only perfect man who walked the earth. He will become to them a very real living being, and His great atoning sacrifice as they grow to manhood and womanhood, will take on a new and more glorious meaning in their lives” (quoted in Church News, 6 Dec. 1997, 2)

This morning, instead of turning the TV on as soon as LQ woke up (this is usually done so mum can get a few more minutes of sleep time), I took her to the computer to have her watch and listen to this week's scripture story.

It worked! She sat on my lap, listened to the story and pointed to things in the pictures that I was pointing to. I was so pleased she was so attentive. I was also pleased that I had made an effort this morning.

LQ also prayed and read the proper scripture with me before sliding off my lap and running to her toys. I am high on a successful mummy moment.
