Only For A Child


Sunday night we had one of those moments that I know I will never forget. We had just finished up a birthday celebration with family at Macaroni Grill. In our car was Joe, Elle, Laura, Chris, & myself. Elle was in the mood to sing…so of course she insisted that all of us join in. And of course, I didn’t have my camera with us.

We spent the ride home singing ABCDEFG (as Elle calls it), Itsy Bitsy Spider, My God is So Big So Strong & So Mighty, and doing “round robin” ABCs. It was pretty classic to have all 5 of us singing these songs. Then Elle wanted to do her new favorite thing. She wanted to sing My God Is So Big So Strong & So Mighty in silly ways. We sang it loud, quiet, regular, fast & slow. (Btw, I recommend doing this with your kids. It teaches them what these words mean, but also adds new life to the songs that you are burnt out on.)

I find it pretty hilarious to see the crazy things that kids can get adults to do. Feel free to share some ridiculous things that a child has managed to get you to do.

    Oh my. You don’t even want to ask. 🙂 Just look through our old family photo albums!

    I do have this mental image of the 5 of you doing this with (actually FOR) Elle. What a great family!
