Fly on the Wall

We were driving to town yesterday when the kids began fighting. The three oldest sit across the back seat of the van. If the saying absence makes the heart grow fonder is true, then it must be the touching that makes the heart desire annoy those nearest you. Apparently, Madisyn had picked at Ty until he could take no more. He lashed out at her little louder than normal and yelled at Madisyn "You're nothing but a little persecutor!". Kent and I were unable to discipline either one of them because we were laughing too hard. And we were a little proud that he used the word in it's correct sense and pronunciation.


  1. Too funny! And good for him on proper usage!

    That reminds me of the time Brady and I were in Wal-Mart and he was dying to get to the fishing stuff. He was young enough then that I didn't let him go alone. Anyway, I told him we would get there and he was just going to have to wait. He kind of shrugged and smiled and said, "Well, tribulation worketh patience." :~)

  2. LOL

    Kids really do say the funniest things.
