A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School...

Little Middle: Baby, let's play a Bible story game. You be Noah, and I'll be God.

Baby: OK.

Little Middle (in a loud, booming voice): Noah, I command you to build an ark!

Baby/Noah (shouting): NO!

Little Middle/God: Then I will make it rain on your head. (Insert rain sounds.)

Noah, build an ark!

Baby/Noah: NO!

Little Middle/God: Then I will strike you with lighting! (Insert loud lightning-ish sound.)

Noah, for the last time! BUILD AN ARK FOR ME!!!

Baby/Noah: OK! I will do it!

Little Middle/God: Thank you. I am happy now.

why don't my children respond in the positive that fast? may I burrow little middle for a while to see if he works on my kids?

Yeah, a guy in our office yesterday tried (for $80!) to eat one of those packaged pickles and couldn't do it. He should learn from your boys...

That's about how some of my conversations with God go!
