Laughs from Little Ones

The other day, our oldest son was trying to encourage his brother to eat his peas.  He said, “Danny, they are so good!  It is like that song, ‘I’ve got peas like a river!’”  After we stopped laughing, we explained to Gilbert that the song says, “I’ve got peace like a river,” not peas!

At the breakfast table one morning, Gilbert said something to Bonnie.  She said, “Liar, liar, pants on fire!” back to him.  Gilbert said, “Mom, Bonnie called me a liar.”  Bonnie said, “I wasn’t calling you a liar, Gilbert.  I was just practicing!”  It is not a bad idea to practice what you say before you say it, but I do not think that was what she was doing.

Until next week, keep your sunny side up!

Kids can be so funny! We were on furlough and in our home church one Sunday. The pastor preached on Moses being advised by his father-in-law. When we were at home and preparing dinner, I told my older daughter (who was standing right beside me) to set the table. She stayed where she was and yelled to her sister, "Set the table!" I said, "What are you doing? I told YOU to set the table." She said, "I'm doing what the pastor said - - I'm delegating authority so I don't crack up."
