Austin and his nursery teacher's conversation just before leaving:
Austin: "I obeyed tonight."
Teacher: "Yes, you did obey!"
Austin: "I obeyed fast!"
Teacher: "Yes, you did good."
Austin: "And I smiled..."
This may not mean a lot to most of you, but to a Mom who has been working diligently to teach him what true obedience is, this means the world! All of those days I thought he was paying me no attention...all of those "talks" we've had to have...we're seeing progress! He is not only memorizing our obedience rule (obey first, obey fast, and obey with a smile/right attitude), but he's repeating it, and he's applying it!
This Mommy is a little excited that I was able to hear that little conversation. A little encouragement just at the right time...
