Have you ever had one of those children who thinks he’s a comedian? A child who will be obedient to what you actually say, but you have to cover EVERYTHING in your directions or else he’ll find a loophole?
Well, I’ve been blessed with such a child. He has got to be one of the most quick-minded people I’ve met -and he’s only six! What are we in for as he grows? Oh boy!
Here’s the latest example…..”Mom, can I take a bath in your big tub?”
“No, my tub uses too much water.”
I hear the water running…..thinking he’s bathing in his tub. As I walk up the stairs, I realize the water is running in MY tub. I quickly walk into my bathroom, ready for discipline, when I find this…..
No, I hadn’t specifically said, “You also may not place any other objects into my tub that use less water.” He thinks he’s so funny!! (I have to admit, that sometimes I think he is, too.)
