The truth about lies...

So it's no secret that Punky had trouble potty training. It's also no secret that she lied many times to us about whether or not she had to go or if she had already gone. Often times, we would explain to her that what she said to us was a lie and make sure she knew she wasn't supposed to tell them. I questioned how much she understood, but since we never KNOW, I forged ahead and didn't use the old excuse, "she's just too young to understand."

Fast forward to today. After lunch we have a daily Bible study and sing songs. They love playing "bible class" with me and it's their own special time with me where I won't let anything interrupt us. It's made me feel better about spending more time with them and in the process they learn about God. What better way to utilize our time together?

We've been studying about Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Esau. Today's lesson focused on how Jacob lied to Isaac when he was old and pretended to be Esau so he could get nice things. At the end of the lesson, it has follow-up questions about what I just read to them. Punky's a pretty smart little cookie and can tell you the correct answers to almost all of them. The question today was: Why did Jacob lie to his father? Punky looked at me and thought a minute.

"Because he poo pooed."

At what age did you potty train her by the way. I am curious to know cause i was thinking about blogging about potty train. Would love to know your views.

I guess she did understand the lesson after all. She was honest with her answer, right. I can't wait to see what mine comes up with. He is talking in sentences more and more every day. It is so funny the things he says already.
