A couple of summers ago, we took a family vacation to visit relatives in Iowa. While waiting to board our plane home, my daughter bought a magazine.
In a huge Hannah Montana phase at the time, she was especially impressed by an article about Miley Cyrus.
“Mom! It says here that Miley Cyrus got to sing for the First Lady!”
Micah, about six at the time, was suddenly riveted. His eyes got as big as saucers. “You mean Miley Cyrus got to sing for Eve??”
Kids are always saying funny stuff. The above story is one of my favorites from my own family. (There’s no great spiritual point there, but it does include a Bible character.)
Summer is upon us again and our adorable children will be around the house more – a lot more. And come July, they might not seem quite so adorable.
A wise friend once told me that when our children are being especially difficult, it helps to think back at times when they were doggone cute.
Maybe remembering the good times will help you sustain you through the inevitable urges to ship them off to summer camp – in Siberia.
So come on! Share a funny experience or quote from your own family history.
I will pick one commenter at random to receive a $20 e-gift card from Barnes & Noble so you can keep those kiddos busy with some summer reading. (Or indulge in some well-deserved escapism yourself.)
I'll announce a winner on Tuesday, June 2nd.
