Dear Lord,

So far today, I’ve done all right. I haven’t gossiped, haven’t lost my temper, haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or over indulgent. I’m very thankful for that.

But, in a few minutes, God, I’m going to get out of bed. And from then on, I’m probably going to need a lot more help.

We were having dinner with our 5 year old grandaughter and she asked if we had any girls.
We told her no, just four boys. She repeated, "You mean no girls". My husband said, "Your daddy was supposed to be our girl"(he was the baby). She immediately looked at him and said,
"Boy I am glad he wasn't, me and my brother would be the only two cousins with two mommies." and proceeded to eat her dinner.
Needless to say, we lost it.

Just happened across this topic & got quite a chuckle! Novice, that's one of my favorites as well. My grandmother told me once that when she was a little girl, she & her sisters would get all dressed up in their prettiest dresses and parade around in front of their daddy. One of them would say, "Daddy, are we pretty?" And he'd reply, "Pretty is as pretty does." It took me a long time to comprehend exactly what that meant.

My husband always said when the boys were little, "I Don't Know" sure is busy because no one around here ever makes a mess except him. Every time we would ask the three boys "Who did this", they would say, "I don't Know.". "I Don't Know" still lives at our house because none of the grandkids ever make a mess either, It is always I DON"T KNOW" We are going to catch him someday, but probably not until we no longer have kids in our home.
