One of our goals as parents is to drill truth into our kids’ hearts at a young age.  Lately, Niki has been telling each of the kids the same affirmation every night:  There is greatness in you.  God has made you to do great things.

The first couple times he did this, the kids either acted annoyed by it or thought it was humorous:  “Daddy?!  Why do you a’ways say ‘there’s greatness in you’?”
But lately, they have really bought into it.  The other night, after Niki kissed Button goodnight, she called out to him, “Daddy!  You forgot to say the greatness part!!!”  And after recently saying the phrase to Siah, he responded enthusiastically, “It’s twue, daddy!!!  It’s twue!!!”
