After a late night, we were headed home. It was past 10:00 p.m. and clearly past Lil’ K’s bedtime. She was excitedly talking about her plans for her birthday party. (Which we haven’t yet planned or decided on yet.)
“I need to make drawings to give away to everyone who comes,” she said. “I will make one when we get home.”
“When we get home, all we need to do is go to bed. It’s very late.”
“No, Mom. I need to make a picture.”
“K… it’s bedtime. You can do it tomorrow.”
“MOM, listen to me. I need to make a picture.”
“K, remember… ‘children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.'” I quoted their “C” Bible verse from school.
“Well, Mom… the other Bible verse says, ‘All have sinned and come short of the glory of God,'” she recited her “A” Bible verse. “And right now, I’m sinning.”
