Monday Madness from Mouths of Babes: At the Very Least
Bella came out of her room about 15 minutes after nap time started today and said. "I'm all done I went nite-nite real good."
"Uh, no you didn't" I said.
"But I laid my head down and went 'honk chew, honk chew' (snoring noises around here when we are pretending to sleep) for a long, looooooooong time!”
How often I find myself trying to get by with the least amount that God asks or requires of me.
..."but I keep my bible out on the night stand, isn't that enough?"
Yeah, it didn’t work for Bella either!
*Disclaimer* In case it has seemed to anyone else, or maybe it is just me being paranoid, but I'm going to say it anyway. I, in no way, am trying to belittle my children by my posts. I am not finding fault with their antics or thinking they should have behaved better, done it differently, etc. I recognize that they are children and therefore, expected to act in a childish manner. And, when I am not being impatient with them, I find it endearing. I, on the other hand, am expected to have moved beyond some of these childish behaviors as their mother. God has blessed me with the ability to learn lessons through them as I see a reflection of what I am in the things my kids say and do. I don't know, maybe he just feels he has to keep it on a preschool level for me to understand but I find I learn the best lessons from the mouths of babes. And in between having to leave the room in the midst of trying to discipline because Bella just makes me have to laugh out loud sometimes, and thinking, did Buddy really just do that, I find a point to all the madness.
