More and more, Isaac is emerging from a grunting toddler into a full-fledged preschooler. He has ideas. He has opinions. He has a score of knock-knock jokes. But he is also beginning his own faith journey. Though his tantrums come and come, we are fighting through them and trying to encourage him to have self-control, talk instead of yell, and have a soft heart to correction (and the wooden spoon encourages on occasion as well.)
Last week we had a challenging few days of stubbornness. One morning he prayed:
Thanks for the food. Thank you for Drew. Mama. Daddy. Ella. Help me have a kind heart. Help me be a good boy. Help me not be nasty. Help me go camping. Amen.
That prayer was encouraging to me!
This morning he began singing "The E-O-E-O-B" (otherwise known as The B-I-B-L-E). =)
