We were standing in the entryway, decorating for Christmas. I was deep into a lecture, on what, I don’t remember. That tells you what impact my lectures have on the people in this household, even I don’t remember what I’m talking about.
Well, let me just stop and ask you this:
Have you ever tried to lecture a 2 year old?
For some reason it seemed like the thing to do, like taking a cat for a walk or like trying to teach an old dog new tricks. Lecture a 2 year old.
She wasn’t listening and like I said, I was deep into a really great lecture when she held up this sign:
Oh. My. Goodness.
“Now, don’t you hold up that peace sign to me little girl, I am trying to tell you something here…!”
Then, I busted up laughing and my 12 year old and 2 year old joined in.
And that’s what happened when I tried to lecture a 2 year old while decorating for Christmas!
