So, I'm pretty sure that my kids don't listen to me when I'm talking. That's why I have to tell them three times to quit jumping on the furniture, and sometimes that is still not enough. But then there are times when I am amazed, and not even aware, that I've said or did something that sticks with them.
This past week the Littles and I were picking G up from school. G gets into the car and this is the conversation between her and Little Miss M:
M: G, what you did in school today?
G: I had a spelling test and a social studies test today.
M: Den? (that's "then" translated to toddler speak)
G: I went to computer and bible.
G: I had lunch and recess.
And this conversation went on much longer than I've detailed here. I just want to say, "thank you G for having patience with her"!
And I'm amazed by this because........it's pretty close to word-for-word what I ask/say when I pick the Littles up from school each day. It's also proof (and hope) that something is getting thru and staying in there :-)
