Sunday we skipped church. BUT we went to an evening potluck dinner for families. This was a potluck dinner with an amazing speaker entitled "How to Integrate God and Your Beliefs into your Children's Life". Hubby and I enjoyed the company and remembered a lot from when we parents of only one child.
So today, I thought I would put some of the ideas into practice:
Hitting has become a problem lately so once the frustration sat in and the hitting began, I stated that "G-d gave us hands for loving".
Here is what I got back:
G-d gave us hands for patting.
G-d gave us hands for coloring.
G-d gave us hands for praying.
G-d gave us lips for kissing.
G-d gave us lips for spitting!
G-d gave us mouths for talking.
G-d gave us feet for shoes.
and the kicker out of the mouth of my potty trainer:
G-d gave us butts for POOPING!
I can't wait for what tomorrow God will have in store for us. I'm really looking forward to it!
by the way, God gave us a heart for compassion and empathy (at least based on what an 8 year old thinks).
