We put Nate and Ava to bed tonight with apparently a little too much chocolate in their system. (Thanks to the church chocolate festival at which my Chocolate Mousse Cake won Honorable Mention. The making of that cake, which took 5 hours by the way, is a story in itself that I will share later.) So we heard some crying and screaming coming from their room and Cody went to investigate. Nate was upset because Ava had been hitting him. She was hitting him because he was out of bed and she feels the need to reign him in I guess. The following conversation ensued:
Nate: WAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Ava hit me!
Cody: Ava, were you hitting Nate?
Ava: Yes! But, but, but...he wasn't obeying God!
Yes folks, that is what we try to teach them around here. If someone isn't obeying God, then by all means, smack the living daylights out of them. They had it coming.
