Of Directness

A couple of days ago, while we continued to struggle with Micaiah's stubborn and non-cooperative attitude she has put on of late, I spent the three-minute drive to church gently lecturing her on why it is important to do what Mommy and Daddy say the first time.  Reminding her of the concept of "danger" and what that could mean if she didn't do what we said, I loquaciously hammered in the point.

In the midst of my speech, Micaiah interrupted, "Mommy?"

"Yes, sweetie?"

"Thank you to stop talking."

Point taken, my direct darling.


  1. what a firecracker!

  2. Haha - so true!  One of the nurses labeled her as such even before she was born - knowing she was right, we chose her middle name (Aydan) because it means "Little Fire"  - she sure hasn't done much to prove us wrong!
