I had an exchange with JJ this morning that I never would have imagined happening.
JJ (from the top deck looking down at me): “Mom, don’t you think you should come in now and start school?”
Me (in the garden below, not even looking up at him): “Ummmm, oh… yea… just five more minutes… K?”
Five minutes later – he’s back.
JJ: ” Okay mom… time to come in now and start school.”
Me: “Awwwww… can I pleeease have five more minutes?”
JJ: “Mooooooommmm, it’s getting late and I want to get worship done so I can do my chores and get on with my day. Now come on!”
Me: “Nsst… man… I don’t want to do school today. Can’t you guys just read worship and stuff by yourselves?”
JJ: “MOM. That is NOT how we do things around here. Time to come in.”
He walks away.
I come in.
