"God is the designer of the family. He intended that the greatest of happiness, the most satisfying aspects of life, the deepest joys should come in our associations together and our concerns one for another as fathers and mothers and children." -Gordon B. Hinckley. "What God Hath Joined Together," Ensign, May 1991.

Hollyn got really mad at me last night when I wouldn't let her play with the handsoap. (She loads it up in her hair). She she was crying and yelling at me. I asked, "What do you want? Do you want to hug me?" She yelled "no!" defiantly. I asked, "Do you want to kiss me?" "No!" she again responded. I tried, "Do you want to hit me?" "No!" "Do you want to push me?" "No!" I held out my fist. "Do you want to bump it?" "Nooo" she said, but less surely, considering. I tried again. "Want to bump it?" She hesitated, then slowly raised her fist and gave me a bump. A minute later she was laughing with her brothers as they ran around calling "bump it! bump it!" Never underestimate the power of The Bump.
