Scriptures and Painting Nails
A reward for pooping in the potty is getting your finger nails and toe nails painted.
At least it is in our house...for Marley.
One evening I got the great idea that Nathan could read scriptures while Marley and I sat quietly and listened and I could paint her fingers and toes.
Well, it turned out Marley had a different idea.
She wanted daddy to paint her nails.
And SHE wanted to read.
She always takes her turn when we read...at least for the first 3 or 4 turns and then she's off doing her own thing, like taking care of her babies.
She has her own hard bound blue Book of Mormon that she opens and turns the pages while we read.
Don't tell her we are in the Old Testament.
She used to just repeat, "emy, emy, emy, emy, emy,..." while she ran her finger across the pages. Now she repeats random words she hears us read like, "Jesus open the door resurrection have the record...." Sometimes she starts "reading" about her friends or about what she did that day.
And sometimes she throws in "And Jesus was so happy!" It's fun!
Here's a video of Marley and her
evil righteous plan working.
