From The Jewel Box # 6

Time for another Jewel.

6/28/05- Becky opened our son’s door at the end of his “room time” to find him sitting in his empty laundry basket. He looked up and said, “The princess will find me floating down the river.”

He was thinking about the Biblical story of Moses being placed in a basket in the Nile River to be found by Pharaoh’s daughter. I thought this one was cute because our son was thinking about the stories we have read him and he is imagining himself as the main character. We, as Christian parents, are also happy that our kids are taking what we teach them seriously.

From The Jewel Box # 5

Last year when our daughter had just turned four (our son was two) the two of them had this little exchange at lunch time. Our son was calling our daughter to come to the table.

Son- Come to the table, come!
Daughter- Don’t tell me what to do!
Son-
What to do!

It may not seem funny just reading it, but picture two little kids trying to establish authority over one another. Our daughter, the older of the two, doesn’t like to be told what to do, especially if it is by her little brother. Our son, on the other hand, rebelliously challenges his older sister and takes her dictate extremely literal.

I thought this was funny because our son completely missed our daughter’s point. She didn’t like being told what to do, but he interpreted her saying not to repeat those exact words. Of course he wasn’t going to grant her wish and, “told her what to do!”

From The Jewel Box # 4

When our daughter was two and a half years old, she had a couple of words that she use to mispronounce. Mosquito bites were Spa-gee-tos bites and Oat meal was called Open meal.
