Practice Makes P-p-p-p-perfect!

Last night as I tucked my kids into bed, Dolly asked for a drink. This is a common bedtime ritual, and I had expected it, so I had the sippy cup of water ready to hand out. While Dolly was drinking as slowly as she could manage and still be swallowing, PC decided to make his request known as well. "Gup!" he uttered. "'You want a drink PC?" I asked. He nodded and repeated himself a little more clearly. "Cup... CUp, CUP!" he said. "Ok, you can say your verse while you wait for Dolly,." I told him. I was thinking that if he wanted to be so precise with his words, it would be a great time to get him to practice his Sunday school verse. This is how it went:

"K, PC, Say your verse. Suffer,"
"No,.. Suffer,"
"PC, say 'to,'"
"PC, say, 'Mark,"
"Good job! Here's your water... now go to sleep.


"Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Mark 10:14


  1. That is so so so so so cute. I am glad you record things like this.

  2. Hilarious! Darius thinks saying the verse is a big joke because Josiah and Chloe laugh whenever he attempts it...so now he just bursts out with a fake laugh whenever we try to get him to say it with them. :)

  3. Practice does make perfect. The verses PC learns now give him the habit. Later on he will remember.

  4. Too cute! I especially like, "dt dt dt" when he thinks he can't pronounce the next word.
