What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

I've Failed as a Mother!

Somehow, the youngest of my six children has arrived at the ripe old age of four having never dunked a cookie in milk! Now before you go and call DSS, I'm happy to tell you that the situation has been completely rectified.

Just how this travesty of justice occurred I can not say. But I discovered it a while ago as I was stealthily dunking my own cookie in milk. Maggie saw me and asserted, "Mommy! You're not 'posed to do that! You don't dip your cookies in milk!" When I assured her that, yes, in fact you do, she just giggled and giggled!

"You DO? Can I do that?"

"Why, yes, my princess, you most certainly may!"

So, she did....again, and again, and again!

And the princess lived happily ever after....

I'm surprised that you still have Saturday's cookies on Monday!

Does you princess dress as a princess every day?

Yes, Roy, she dresses as a princess every day! I've decided if that's the worst of the parenting issues I have to deal with, I'm doing pretty good!

However, you've made me's been a while since I laundered that dress....
