After Sunday’s post of not being able to wash your hands in the toilet, I was thinking about my ultimate rule that I ever had to make.
Are you ready?
No seriously are ready for this one?
I will set the scene for you. Grace and Lydia are 3 and 2 respectively and Adie was about two weeks old.
I walk into the room and have to say….
“You absolutely cannot breastfeed each other.”
This was one of those moments where I had to turn away from them so that I could turn back and give them a serious look. Really – what would have you done in this situation? I can still laugh myself to tears thinking about those two.
I admit that I wasn’t completely listening to Grace and this is how the conversation started at dinner tonight.
“That’s how God made me, Mom!”
Me: “hmm, what are you talking about Grace?”
Grace: “He made me to want to sit on the table. I just can’t help how God made me.”
Me: “Well, I am your mommy and I can make you NOT sit on the table.”
Creative I tell you! She is always thinking. I will embrace how God made my children any day but they still can’t sit on the table.
This morning I had to make a new rule at my house.
DO NOT WASH YOUR HANDS IN THE TOILET!
I just finished a great book by Russell D. Moore, author of Adopted For Life. This is a book about the Christian perspective of adoption upward and outward. I HIGHLY recommend it – even if you have no inkling of adoption. You may know someone who is adopted or is adopting. (And you just might never know how God will work on your heart in the process.)
One of the reasons I enjoyed this book so much was the fact that he showed me how God looks at adoption. Have you ever thought about the fact that Jesus was truly adopted into the line of Joseph. He had no DNA of Joseph running through his blood and yet he has the birth line of David.
You will not be disappointed reading this book. I am hoping many from my family and church will read it.
We went to the lake yesterday for some fun with the cousins.
Last night our family spent the night.
Carl and the girls made blueberry pancakes for breakfast! Yum – my favorite!
Even though it was kind of a dreary morning they went swimming and we went for a short canoe ride. We made memories and enjoyed ourselves.
