Articulate Crack-Up

Cadence is such a funny little thing. She just ran into me with a somewhat panicked look on her face. She said, "Mom, Serenity has something poking her in the eye. I asked her if I could look and she won't let me. She insulted me. She insulted me by not letting me see."

I replied while trying to keep a straight face, "she insulted you?"

To which Cadence said, "Do you know what that means?"

I smiled and said, "do YOU know what that means?"

"What does it mean, Mom?"

"It means she hurt your feelings."

Then she yelled, "YES, EXACTLY. She insulted me and Heavenly Father is watching her."

Luckily, it was made 'all better' by a kiss and a hug from mommy. I hope that solution keeps working for a good long time.

Cadi should maybe say that last line to her daddy, eh? Oh sorry, we don't need to bring him up any more.

How funny. That's cute story Hil. We sure had fun celebrating Cadi's bday last night with that crowded house. My girls cried half way home because they didn't want to leave. We sure love you guys.

Cadi is such a cute girl. Apprearently an earlier lesson about not getting away with things in the end had been on her mind. I love seeing little glimpses of conscience in my girls.
