Right now (9:19 am) . . .
I’m sitting on the couch nursing Hershey while checking blogs on the laptop.
Truffle is practicing the piano playing the simplified version of “Mrs. Darcy” from Pride and Prejudice.
Fudge is learning to crochet and has made about 2 feet of single crochet stitches with her tongue sticking out the whole time.
Bon Bon and Semisweet are eating leftover pizza for breakfast. Cookie is eating snap peas and Special Dark is eating Magic PB cookies (naturally).
Brownie’s cleaning the bathroom.
Mr. Ferrero Rocher left five minutes ago after I helped him find this quote in preparation for church tomorrow.
In our day, many children grow up with distorted values because we as parents overindulge them. Whether you are well-to-do or, like most of us, of more modest means, we as parents often attempt to provide children with almost everything they want thus taking away from them the blessing of anticipating, of longing for something they do not have. One of the most important things we can teach our children is to deny themselves. Instant gratification generally makes for weak people. How many truly great individuals do you know who never had to struggle? ~Joe J. Christensen, “Greed, Selfishness, and Overindulgence,” Ensign, May 1999, 9~
What do your Saturday mornings look like?
