Can I do it later?

I wonder if God was blogging, if He’d be posting a similar conversation He has had with me (several times) to the one I had with my son…

April 17, 2009

Me: (picking up one of Eli’s outside toys that was near the porch) Eli, would you like this toy in your clubhouse?
Eli: Yes, but I can do it! You stay there!
Me: Are you doing something you are not supposed to be doing?
Eli: (pause) Yes.
Me: Perhaps you had better stop.
Eli: Ok… can I do it later?
Me: No!

    Oh my – this is PRICELESS! It is such a true snapshot of the human condition. You couldn't make up such a rich mini-drama if you tried!!

    Might I borrow it – with proper attribution, of course – for the purposes of training staff to work with therapy clients?

    Please feel free to absolutely say no.

    You most certainly can borrow it. I tell you, I could probably create a blog of just Eli’s random daily comments and insight!
