Guess who gave me a letter

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.

    It really is cute to watch her insist on giving her tithing to Lee. Tithing is for Jesus and Lee is Jesus. Tithing MUST go to Lee. No one else in the bishopric is qualified, in her mind, to accept her tithing. 😀

    lol. It’s so funny, they are completely open to knowledge, they soak it up like a thirsty sponge. And then of course, they make a toddler (or young child’s) applications in thier own life.

    The example I have is not as righteous as yours. The other day my littler girl wanted to watch a movie. It was sunday, and so we were insisting on a sunday movie. My husband wanted to watch “the testaments” because we had rented it from the movie, and of course it has a picture of Jesus visiting the Nephites on the cover. My little girl was upset because she wanted to watch a Disney movie instead. When we put the video in, she starts throwing a fit. “I don’t like Jesus, mom! I don’t LIKE Jesus!”

    I hope that Jesus understands that, as she has made similar claims about everyone in the family this week (Mom! I don’t LIKE Sam, mom! I don’t LIKE Sam!) (I don’t LIKE Daddy, Mom!) Mostly when she’s wanted to be held, by herself in mom’s lap, of course… she probably doesn’t really mean it.

    sorry. We didn’t rent it from the movie, we checked it out from the library. Sigh. English skills obviously require a little bit of time in the morning…

    Have you told her that Jesus is always watching her?
