Bedtime seems to almost always be a struggle around our house.  I know we are not alone in this but man, some nights...  I am tired by the end of the day, the kids are tired but don't want to miss a thing, and hubby is tired and just wants a few minutes of peace and quiet.  I get it.  I understand it.  And yet it still doesn't always make me respond in the manner I would have liked.  So this is an awesome quote I may have to print and post right on the outside of each of their rooms to keep me from cracking some nights.  ;)

Parents, remember that now is your opportunity.
You may feel yourself harassed as you struggle
through the days with children,
but you are living the happiest
and the most golden years of your life.
As you tuck them into their beds at night,
please be kind to them.
Let them hear a kind voice amid all the
angry, vile voices that they will hear throughout life.
Let there be an anchor to which these little ones
can turn to when all else fails.
The Lord help you so to do...

Harold B. Lee

Hardest time of the day and I do remember the struggles, but looking back on it, there were also many wonderful moments with the kids--snuggles, confessions, stories, etc...It's a great quote!
