Tongginator Thoughts About God

during bath time on Sunday night

TONGGU MOMMA
: Tongginator, you have had a very tough day today. You need to get it together or you're not gonna have book tonight.

TONGGINATOR: (totally exasperated) But Momma, I don't know if I can get it together. God's just not helping me out today.

TONGGU MOMMA: God's not helping you out? What are you talking about?

TONGGINATOR: He's not talking to me, Momma.

TONGGU MOMMA
: Tongginator, He is talking to you. You just have to stop talking yourself long enough to listen to him.

TONGGINATOR: (short pause, then in a flippant tone) Momma, he's still not talking.

TONGGU MOMMA
: (maybe possibly trying not to laugh) Tongginator, He is. You have to stop. You have to wait. And then you will hear Him.

TONGGINATOR: (longer pause, then total sassiness) He's still not saying ANYTHING, Momma.

TONGGU MOMMA
: Well, if that's the case, then I think you must be too tired for book tonight. Because if you are too tired to hear God, then you are definitely too tired to hear a book.

TONGGINATOR: Oh, no, Momma! I hear Him now!

TONGGU MOMMA
: Oh, you do, huh? What's He telling you right now?

TONGGINATOR: Umm... He's telling me that I need to lose my attitude? And to stop arguing? And to maybe stop being so sassy?

TONGGU MOMMA
: (definitely choking back a laugh now) I think you're right, honey bear. I think that's exactly what He's telling you.

TONGGINATOR: So... does that mean I get book then?

I'm glad she got book.

That being said I did expect her to say "Gd said for you to give me book!"

What a great scene.

Chelsea Gour said...

Mom, I hope you have all your wits about you every. single. day. Because, it is going to take all that you have {a possibly more} to keep up with that one! I know. I have one too!

What a sweet moment, sass aside!! And sometimes even the sass can be a treat! ( in a limited way!) :)

She is so, so smart! Sounds like you know how to handle her though!

perhaps a deeper lessen in there, no? perhaps many of us need to listen a little more.

Patricia/NYC said...

Oh my goodness...this made me laugh out loud! This could very well be a conversation in our house...word for word!!!! lol!!!

The other day, when Kiara was less than agreeable & I was trying to get her back on track, she said to me: "I'm sorry momma, but Jesus made me this way"....

oh boy!!! These girls are so smart & so gosh darn cute!! (if I must say so myself!) ha!

Mei Ling said...
