She was about 4 or 5 at the time and had just started going to Catechism Classes. We were in Target and she had been running around so I stuck her in the cart. She then started to beg for a new toy or something of the sort.
"No," I said to her. "You have not been behaving yourself. We don't buy toys for little girls who are naughty."
"But mommy," she began reasoning. "Jesus wants me to have a toy."
"Yeah?" I said.
"Yes, and if you don't listen to Jesus you will make him angry. It's naughty to make Jesus angry!" She explained with such eloquence. "So you NEED to buy me a toy."
Ahhhhh....young children. She's quite creative when it comes to getting her way. I seriously had to fight back laughter at that point. At least I know she was listening in class!
