Emma had a playdate today, so on the way over we talked about good behavior.
So Emma, you need to be nice and have good manners, okay?
Yes Mom. I'll be good.
Okay. Remember, say please and thank you. Don't be rude. Share.
Yes Mom. I know.
Oh, (just to tease her) and remember, no giggling!
No giggling? But MOM (in that oh so dramatic, pre-teen fashion), we CAN'T have FUN if we DON'T giggle!
Good to know.
And for the Beatty kids-ism:
We were telling the children how we have a new prophet, Thomas S. Monson.
They were trying to recall which one he was, and asked, "Oh, is he the one that looks like Uncle Rick?"
Uncle Rick? Really?
I guess I had never seen the resemblence, but when we looked President Monson up on the computer, they assured me that he did indeed look like their Uncle Rick. (And I think it made them feel instantly closer to the new prophet.)
So, you be the judge.
