As we were driving home from Awana this week, my jokester husband was teasing Punkin (who, by the way, loves it when he is silly with her like this.) The conversation went a little like this:

WeaverDad: Do frogs have legs?
Punkin: Yes
WD: Do you have legs?
P: Yes
WD: Then you must be a frog!
P: I am not a frog!
WD: But, you have legs - you must be a frog!
P: I am NOT a frog.
(About here is when I quit wondering why the bible verse says "Fathers, do not exasperate your children.")
WD: Birds have legs - you must be a bird then.
P: Birds don't have legs! They have sticks!


I might have mentioned that we stay a little busy. One of my strategies for fitting it all in is for SnugBug and I to bring groceries home and put them away while Punkin is at gymnastics class. Punkin has been riding way in the back of the mini-van, and SnugBug rides behind me. This past week, he fell asleep on the way to drop her off for her class, so he slept through us dropping her off and he slept all the way home.

As I was getting the last bag of groceries from the car, he woke up. I told him that I was going to unload the groceries and asked if he would like to get out or just stay put because we had to go back and get sister. He sleepily said that he would just wait in the van.

As I'm putting away groceries, I hear him crying. I went out and asked, "Did you change your mind? Would you like to get out?"

"NO," he screams at me. "I'm mad 'cause Sister is ignoring me. She won't talk to me!"

"Sweetie, she's at gymnastics. She's not back there."

"Oh." *sniff, sniff*

Too precious!! Love the sticks AND really loved that he thought sister was ignoring him. Don't you love that they care!! That is the best. I want my kids to enjoy each other and CARE if the other wrongs them.
