Moms and Dads, Stay Close. . . .

One night this week, when I was sitting at the hospital with my mother, hubby had an interesting experience at home. Despite the humor, it brings even more light to Proverbs 29:15:

"The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother."

Little Sister came up to her daddy and suggested, "Daddy, I want you to go out to your office."

(Hubby's office is a separate small building behind our house.)

"Why do you want me to go out to my office?" he wisely asked.

"So I can do some stuff. . . . . ." she replied.

"What kind of stuff?"

She proceeded to answer very honestly, "Stuff I will get in trouble for. . . . . . ."

Needless to say, hubby stayed very close. . . . . . . . ;-)

In the Heart of our Home (and tales to enjoy when I'm not ;-)

Crack me up! That's about as funny as Abbie telling me that Matt is the best hopper in their family.
