No Boys!

Disclaimer: having babies is great, they are really cute and the turn into toddlers who are really fun. Having oldder kids is amazing because the are old enough to respond with logic.


The night time routine here is great. 4 simple steps:
1. Scriptures
2. Song
3. Prayer
4. Bed

Yeah, the Wheeler kids actually just go right to sleep. We are hoping Ashby picks up on it. :)

Tonight we read(1) 3 Nephi 14. 3 Ne. 14: 24-27 stood out (about the wise and foolish men), so for out song(2) we sang The Wise Man and the Foolish Man. Anyone familiar with this will recall the hand motions that go with the chorus.

The rains came down (hands moving down like rain)
And the flood cam up (hands moving up)

Well. During this song Isaac (11) changes things up:

The floods came down
And the rains came up.

We finish and Mabel (8) can't believe he did that.

Mabel: Isaac, why did you do that ?
Me: Oh, come on Mabel, he had too, all boys his age do it!
Mabel: Really?
Me: Yeah, boys his age even did it when I was in Primary!
Mabel: (look of astonishment)
Me: Boys did it then, Isaac does it now, Henry will do it, my sons will probably do and so will yours one day!
Mabel (immediately): I don't want to have boys!!
Me: what?
Mabel: I'm not having boys, just girls, nice sweet girls
Me(laughing): oh yeah?
Mabel: Yes, nice sweet girls, but not too many of them.
