We went to visit our neighbor's goats again today and I was thinking about how I will sometimes lament how far we live from the zoo. But then we have experiences like this and I realize the trade off is quite fair.
I actually just jumped on here to record two quick Ivar quotes from the day.
Today during nap I was singing The B, I, B, L, E to Ivar. I sang, "I stand alone on the word of God..." And he interrupted, "That will be so owie to stand on Jesus."
And then later this afternoon I walked past his door where he was playing alone and heard him say, "Okay. I'll tell you a little choice. You can sit there or there." And then his voice raised and he said, "No, I said there or there!"
The boy has picked up on my choice centered parenting. And my raised voice when he doesn't pick one of my choices!
