I was sitting just a few rows back from the front in church this evening.

Aaron went to sleep before the praise team was done singing so it was just me and Isaiah.

He had an activity book and was struggling with a crossword puzzle.

Isaiah: I don’t know how to do these. Crossword puzzles are hard!

Across
4. Where you eat dinner, it has four legs.

Clue:      T ? ? L ?

He looks into my eyes with a confused expression. He has no idea.

Across
4. Where you eat dinner..

His response… “anywhere?”

No baby… it’s table. I briefly hang my head in shame before turning my attention back to the sermon.

Note to self: make the kids eat in the dining room.
