The napping fire chief

This morning while reading a book on virtues of little boys, I read that little boys are wise. "Do you want to be wise when you grow up," I asked the boys.

Isaac crinkled his nose and shook his head. "No," he said. "I want to be a fire chief."

And of course, Elijah then echoed big brother. "Not wise," he huffed. "Fire deef."

Before bed this evening, I was reading the boys their devotional* Bible. I asked them, as the book instructed, what they did to help their Daddy and Mommy.

Isaac replied, "I clean up my toys. I feed Scrubby."

Elijah said, "I take naps."

I couldn't disagree with ANY of those responses. A child taking a nap definitely helps me!

*Someone had asked me what devotional materials I use this devotional and love it. I substitute in the boys' names for the fictional kids in the book. They really enjoy it. I use this Bible as well each night. We read one entry from each book, and the boys seem to really enjoy them. Great pictures and stories.

Elijah's comment cracked me up! Classic.
