Today while driving home from CATECHISM (you will understand the caps soon... trust me) my Matthew and Ruby were discussing their doctor's visit yesterday.
Matthew: "Mom, don't forget the doctor said to take everything out of Ruby's room so she will be bored and sleep."
Me: "Matthew, that is a great idea, but it's not going to happen unless the doctor rents me a storage unit and does it for me. Thank you for worrying about your sister's sleep hygiene."
Ruby: "Well I don't care WHAT the doctor says, you are not taking my American Girl doll"
Matthew: "But you should take her doll mom, she likes to play with it when she is supposed to be sleeping."
Ruby: "Well she better not take my doll, that would just make me mad. Besides, she could take everything from my room and I could have fun with just a pole."
Matthew: "A pole?! What are you going to do with a pole?!"
Ruby: "All sorts of fun stuff if I have to. I am good at doing stuff that is fun."
Yea, I am not making this up. Nothing like having your daughter announce that her future involves fun with a pole on the way home from church.....
Pray for me.
God is good. All the time.
