She (with cookie poised just so), began to nurse but quickly stopped...looked at the cookie...looked back at me... I couldn't help but just crack up laughing because her dilemma was so apparent and so ridiculously cute. She totally just wanted a wee bit of milk with that there little cookie of hers! She and I both had a good laugh while the whole charade continued a little longer. She knew this was a funny thing! Sip....bite....sip....bite.... but not quite the same as dunking. I guess my little baby is growing up and needs a good cup of milk to dunk in. (sigh)
Hannah's Thriving Business...
My Hannah has taken it upon herself to figure out a few little tunes that happen to be favorites of the younger kids. Today she said in her sweet soft little lispy voice
She's talking about when she read about Propaganda Techniques with her father in her little Fallacy Detective logic book by the Bluedorn brothers. To be exact, I think it would fall under the Bandwagon Propaganda of appealling to people's vulnerability to "everybody's doing it". She's frighteningly perceptive. (Thank God she's the angelic one). I just watched quite amused as two of my children in particular... the two I've always known would be succeptible to all the bandwagons we parents fear... scrambled frantically for all their change and eventually turned up broke. Yes, I'm thankful that they are home with me and that Lord willing I have many years to teach them.
And I mean heck, at least if they're broke, we're keeping the money in the family?
