If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

A 7 Year Old's View of Discipline

Sometimes our kids just leave us laughing out loud and tonight was one of those nights for us. Trent took the kids with him to the store tonight and they gave him a bit of a hard time and got in a little trouble. After we got home, Jack disappeared for a few minutes and then came in with this. We didn't get a chance to look at it until after he went to bed but it was well worth it. I will try and do a little translating for you.

*E.B. White wrote Charlotte's Web. It must have been familiar or near him?

*Are your children bad? You do not get mad. You just need to discipline them. Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.

*All you need to do is discipline them. That is all you need to do. Like this give them a spanking or time out or privilege. (we do a lot of losing privileges around here.)

*Or you can ground them bad or 16. That's all you need to do. Be safe. Bye (I am not sure what the "bad or 16" part means)

*Remember be nice to parents and friends. That way they like you. By Jack

So there you go parents. A little parenting 101 from my 7 year old.

OMGoodness!...that was SOOOOOOOOO cute!! I love hearing things from kids perspectives. It reminds me of the old TV show with Art Linkletter ~ "Kids Say the Darndest Things" It is SO true!!

And the photos of your kids decorating the tree...too sweet! What precious memories being captured. Love it!!

Have a blessed week and a very Happy Thanksgiving! <><


P.S.>> No pun intended...but the Humpty Dumpty story atop your blog, absolutely CRACKED ME UP!!! ;)
