This morning after I put my youngest down for a nap, I curled up on the couch with my Bible. This ritual is one of my favorite parts of the day. Samuel and Kiyoshi were playing quietly, because by now they know that when Mommy is reading the Bible, they are not to disturb her. Or so I thought. Before I was halfway through, Kiyoshi began to bounce around my little retreat, making all sorts of little boy noises. I put aside my reading for a bit to have the following exchange:
Me: Kiyoshi, what is Mommy doing right now?
Kiyoshi: Reading the Bible.
Me: And what do you need to do when I'm reading the Bible?
Kiyoshi: Flush the toilet?
I just want to know―how would you have responded to that one?
I have to confess that I laughed. It just burst out before I could stop it!
