A Good Laugh
Laura loves to sing!
When we rock to sleep at night, we sing songs. The songs must be in the same order every night without skipping any verses, and we must end with counting to 10, and then to 20.
Every night. The same ritual. She is a child of routine.
One of her favorite songs is, "The Wise Man Built His House Upon a Rock." Except after the rains come down and the floods come up, she says, "the wise man's house stood BURM!" (The picture is of her and baby Stella being wisemen.)
Another one of her favorite songs is "Jesus Loves the Little Children."
We used to sing the first verse only, but she must have learned the second verse at church. One day, after we had finished singing the first verse, Laura demanded, "Sing Jesus in diapers!" We couldn't figure out what she was talking about.
Then we realized she was referring to the song's second verse - "Jesus DIED FOR all the children..."
