What's in a name...

Our daughter, Tessa, and her husband, Bill, took their four children to church this morning. This is a good thing, right? Well it is but sometimes it can be trying. This was one of those mornings. James, who is three, just wasn't in the mood for sitting still. So his dad decided to take him outside and have a little talk. Here is how the conversation went:

Bill: James, you have to behave in church.

James: No. I'm James.

Bill: We can go back inside if you promise to behave.

James: No! I'm James!

Bill (getting frustrated): You have to behave!

James: But I'm not HAVE, I'm James William !
A lot of laughing went on in place of praying this morning. I do believe that was a good trade off all in all.

And to all my friends, I hope you had a wonderful day!

That is too funny!

When Emerson was that age and we called her Smartypants she would say "I'm not pants, I'm peoples!"

That's cute! Although probably not the best place to have that discussion with his dad.

Reminds me of a conversation between my Mam and one of my brothers.

Only Carl and I have the same father, Wayne's father is a different guy... His name is "Phillip" I'm telling you this because that's how the conversation started... Wayne was acting like his father and Mam didn't like it. So...

Mam: See you, you're Phillip the second!
Wayne: No, I'm not!
Mam: You are!
Wayne: No! I haven't got Phillip in my name!

She told him to get out of her sight. LOL!
