“what did you guys talk about in church today?” i asked the kids around the dinner table.
“things so cool you would not even understand.” keats replied.
of course chicka said the exact same thing.
“we watched a movie about some kid who went into the woods to pray.” bird chirped.
at this point the hubby thought it was about the little boy who is missing: Chad Stilson, last seen a week ago sunday, still not found. left with only his backpack and cell phone and no charger for his cell phone. so sad, i can’t even imagine what his parents are feeling.
but no, bird was talking about someone completely different and when the hubby figured it out, he was feeling religious guilt that only the religious can feel.
remember how i mentioned the articles of faith are memorized by mormon folk in-utero? well joseph smith is taught before conception.
“what did you talk about keats?” i asked again.
again, same answer.
again, same answer from chicka.
“i, for one, had a great lesson, we talked about how when kids answer ‘something so cool you would not ever understand’ we get to take away movie time and WII privileges.”
“WHAT!?? where did you learn that, you are making that up.”
“nope. church handbook, chapter 2 paragraph tres.” i said.
“you are evil.” the hubby whispered.
“your daughter still thinks it is ‘some kid’.” i whispered back.
keats immediately started spewing church talk wisdom followed closely by chicka.
“i also learned that handbooks are very handy for mothers.” chicka added.
then to add insult to the already religiously guilty she added “who is this kid we are talking about anyways?”
don’t worry, bear has our back in religification:
“dear Heavenly Father, thank you for the food, thank you for costco, thank you for pizza, thank you for emma.” amen.
and last but not least, an update on the dishwasher.
he let all the dishes sit out saturday night to let the food get good and dried THEN put them in the dishwasher sunday morning.
not a speck of food on them after the wash cycle.
kenmore, you make a bang-up-of-a-job dishwasher.
hubby tested, mother approved.
ps. right after i posted this the news stated that chad is home.
