Taking matters into her own hands

All Done! Me---up!!

That's what Cosette announced as she walked down the hallway. The thing was, she was supposed to be taking a nap.

"You're all done with your nap?"

Yep!

"Did you even go to sleep?"

Nope! (Picture a big radiant smile here as Cosette thinks that she has just found a very clever way to get out of having a nap----just take matters into her own hands!)

"Well, you are going to have to turn around and go back to bed."

(Disappear the radiant smile--enter a look of astonishment--probably over the sudden realization in her two year old mind that she doesn't control the world.)

As stern as I tried to be at the time, I laughed when telling Joel about it later. The mind of a two year old, I'm finding, is a very funny thing! It is also like a sponge! Everything I do or say just seeps into her little mind and stays there! What a wonderful opportunity to fill it with good stuff! God grant me grace to be faithful!!
