We have a little obsessive compulsiveness running through our veins. It showed itself today when I saw Ethan eyeing these little pictures of Aidan. I asked what he was doing (because he was so still) and he confessed, "I keep thinking about cutting this."
This kid is a wild man with scissors. He can't control himself. I've had to hide his scissors from him several times already (and forget where I put them sometimes).
I told him that he couldn't cut the pictures, but then after a few minutes changed my mind & thought he could cut one off (hoping to curb his passion). As soon as I told him he could cut it his little voice said, "Mom, I already did." And this is what he showed me:
Next thing I know they were on Aidan's package (the only one under the tree-Ethan wrapped it and keeps begging me to open it now. Oh man.:)
We were also talking about the Nativity scene when Ethan asked for the baby Jesus' "nest". I figured he meant manger. Since we are always trying to find new ways to make the scriptures come alive & apply them to our lives(and not to be sacrilegious) "baby Jesus" really hit home when we added a little baby of our own...
