Bible Study

Now that DD10 is getting older, I'm much more concerned about the content of the books she's reading, so when she came to me with questions about a woman bleeding after having a baby, I was immediately on guard. 

"What book was that in?" I demanded, appalled. 

"The Bible," she replied. 

Darn Leviticus.

Shirking Responsibility

DS8 to DD4: "I bet you don't know how to put this bag in the trash can." 

DD4 (obstinately): "Yes, I can!" 

DD8: "Show me."
