A few days ago we were attempting to have our family Bible time before bed. So many times one of us will get tickled (self included… sorry, sweets) and it is hard to contain. This night was no different.
Greg would begin talking and BabyGirl3 would “talk” with him.
He would stop.
She would stop.
He would start.
She would start again… and it was loud! We all got tickled and tried to fight back the laughter.
Well Girl2 (age 3) started laughing at Girl2.
Poor Greg TRIED to keep it going… and it was too difficult.
Girl3 talking… Girl2 laughing at Girl3.
Greg finally says (in a firm voice)… “Girl2, Girl3 is a baby… but you’re a big girl, you know better… you’re going to have a spank if you don’t hush”…
She turns it around quickly and says in a serious tone, “Mama will send you to jail.”
Needless to say, it was over for us all at that point….
Keep those family Bible times going- even through the laughter and talking! They ARE learning and you will treasure those memories!
