#MidnightMadness – 10/31/2017

Well, I wasn’t going to do another Midnight Madness tonight, but I began to think twice after reading to my daughter from her Bedtime Bible.

Normally this book isn’t too bad, aside from the very glossed over parts about what truly happened in certain stories.  I suppose they figure it’s a children’s book, so they have to keep it somewhat discreet.

However, after reading it tonight, I have finally come to realize just how ill advised this book really is.  And I began to wonder if this is the reason why so many Christians are often left confused on how they should treat other people.

Here’s one of the bits of advice given for today, on “How to Treat Friends…

“If your friend is sad, do not try to cheer him up, that will only make him feel worse.”

Do not try to cheer him up???  What?  I nearly took the book and threw it against the wall!  Thank goodness she wasn’t reading this piece of garbage by herself, and I’m fairly sure we can find a much better book to read next time.  Thankfully we have a whole set of Dr. Seuss!

I’m craving a hot drink right now and once and awhile I crave a stiff drink, and when a woman says something like this, you have to kind of wonder what she means by that.  😉

Sorry… it’s midnight.  I get silly this time of night.  Lol…

#MidnightMadness – 5/26/2017

The other day I told my daughter (15) that all of the forks were being washed in the dishwasher and so she’d have to use a spoon to eat her meal.  I had a serving spoon on the counter for her to dish up her meal with, and I figured she’d grab a normal size spoon out of the silverware drawer to eat with.

When I came back a little while later, I found her eating her salad with this…

Yes!  That’s the serving spoon!  I took one look at her and said, “Why aren’t you using a regular sized spoon to eat with?”  She looked at me with wide confused eyes and then began to laugh so hard she could barely talk…  She said, “Oh mom, I thought you meant all the silverware was in the dishwasher and I had to eat with the serving spoon!”

Anyway, it was really funny, and she’s such a petite little person.  So to see her trying to eat with this huge serving spoon made us both laugh.

And look at the difference in size!  Lol… 😉
