Simplicity of Llife


Morgan is at a great age and a bad age right now. She has yet to learn how to sit in our lap for more then 5 min but she finds such pleasure in the simple things.

Morgans exploring how things work in life. Like drinking out of a cup, going down stairs, touching hot things-oouch! and daddy and mommy get to parent and hide our smiles when she figures out, the hard way, how things work.

I have tried to let her find out for herself and not come to the rescue all the time. For example, she did take a slight tumble down the 2 steps going to the backyard cause she wasn't going down safely (babies really do bounce!, she was none the worse) and I smiled to myself as she poured all of the dog's water over herself yesterday. She said the word cold for the first time!

I did intervene when she was trying to take out the carton of chocolate milk and it started to pour out onto her head. Next time if it's closer to 5 pm, I'll let her pour it all over herself and she can surprise daddy at the door :)

I wonder if God doesn't feel like this watching his children walk through life figuring out how his world works. Seeing his children fall down stairs and pour cold water all over themselves. I bet God smiles or cries alot

that was very good...
I know that God has probably wanted to bend me over and spank me a few times:)

God watches me, and probably thinks he should escort me over to the short bus... I am kind of dense sometimes...

Laura- I wonder how big God's spanking spoon is :)
Me to Jeni, even though I hope God laughs at my stupidity with an all knowing smile

Morgan & I made faces at each other across the table last night. She's got some good ones.

She does make good faces even the angry ones are cute

i would think that it's possible God would spank using a paint stirrer with dried paint on it. at least when Jesus is busy making lemonade with the wooden spoon.
