"Mom, Did You Know That Is A Rule?"

So, I guess you can say I was called out by my daughter today. I decided to leave the kids home while I ran an errand to the store. When I called home to see if we needed more bread in the house my obedient daughter Madison answered the phone. After she checked to see if we were out of bread she asked me, "Mom isn't there a rule that you should not talk on the phone while you drive?" Of course by this time I couldn't lie and I am disobeying the twelfth article of faith, so all I could think was "That's why I better go, love you, bye!" Just as sweetly as she asked me she said "Okay mom, I love you too, bye!" All I could do was giggle inside knowing that she is once again right!

I'm just jealous that you can leave your kids at home alone and run to the store. Someday...

Wow, your girls are getting old. I don't think mine would ever pass up a chance to get out of the house with Mom. (I realize that it IS an honor to be popular, especially with my children! I also don't think it will last too much longer for some of my dear ones.) It's always wonderful to realize that your children are listening and making sense of their world. Kudos to Maddie!!!
