My daughter is adorable.
Last Friday I ended up going to the Boy Scout district office to pick up merit badges for an upcoming Court of Honor. I normally don’t go, but our friends (who do normally go) asked us to help them out. On Sunday, we turned in our reimbursement form to the bishopric. Yesterday, Lee, the second councilor in the bishopric dropped by the house to give us the reimbursement check, and this is where it gets cute.
Lee is a good friend and a great guy. One of the things I love most about Lee is that he takes the time to make Katherine important. She trusts and loves him dearly and will frequently go talk to him on her own. Lee also has a beard, which typically doesn’t matter except for Katherine also tends to give her tithing to him. And we have done a good job of teaching Katherine that tithing money goes to Jesus.
Are we putting two and two together yet?
Yes, Katherine does not call Lee, Lee… Lee is Jesus, and she’s called him that for about a year now despite our best efforts to fix that.
So yesterday, Lee dropped off the reimbursement check and took a minute of his precious time to talk to Katherine. She told him all about the movie she was watching (Incredibles) and some of her favorite toys. And when they were done, she shut the door, turned to Courtney, and announced in a proud voice: “Mommy! Jesus gave daddy a letter!!!”
Almost makes me want to frame the check.
