We had a really funny conversation with Elizabeth last night. Before I get to it, I have to tell you the background. Andrew has always struggled going into the Nursery at church. We try to talk to him about it on Friday and Saturday before church, to make sure he knows what is expected of him.
Last night we were in the car when the following exchange occurred.
Daddy: Andrew, do you know what day it is?
Elizabeth: Is it church day Daddy?
Mommy: Yes, Elizabeth. Andrew, do you think you can be a good boy and go to class?
Elizabeth: Andrew you don't cry in class. You need to be happy.
Elizabeth: Andrew are you listening?
Elizabeth (frustrated): Mommy, he's not listening to me.
I had another laughing moment earlier in the day. When we don't want the children to know what we are talking about....like cookies, or the park etc. we spell them out.
Yesterday I found a swimming suit on clearance for $1. I was so excited to tell Jeremy, but I didn't want Elizabeth to know about it. So I said: "I found a s-w-i-m-m-i-n-g s-u-i-t for Elizabeth." Elizabeth immediately looks at me and says with bright eyes, "you found a new swimming suit for me. Oh thank you Mommy." When did she learn how to spell?
