Tonight I had a couple good laughs courtesy of my two and four year old. Here are their stories, the two year old first then the four year old.
Tonight Hazel said the prayer at dinner time. Here was the beginning of her prayer, "Dear Heavenly Father, we are grateful for....(she opens her eyes and noticed the open tub of butter next to her)...the butter". (She leans forward with her head in the butter tub and sniffs), "and it smells good." Yes, my girls all love butter. Hazel may even like it more than chocolate.
Later in the evening while I was working on a project Maren walked up to me and announced, "Dad, I know how to take care of babies, they are not like bean bags or chairs." I didn't know how to respond other than to affirm that she was correct. She then turned and walked off.
Lessons Learned: Keep your eyes closed during the prayer or you might get distracted by the butter and don't treat your baby like a bean bag.
