eBay or Craigslist?

At church on Sunday Scott had to be taken out of the meeting again. This, obviously, is not what's newsworthy. The interesting part is why we had to take him out. I mean, sure he pretends any object he gets his hands on is some kind of vehicle and makes loud zooming and crashing noises. That's old news. And sure he screeches at the top of his lungs when you don't give him what he wants or when Claire tries to boss him around. I've already told you about that. But now he likes to climb on my lap, stand up, and exclaim as loud as he can, "I'm on top of the world!!!"

I think that really is how he sees things. No matter how many times you take this kid out to a boring foyer where he has to sit on dad's lap with no toys, you just can't crush that spirit of his. Endearing, yet exhausting. We've been contemplating Plan B:

I thought about giving my kids away but thought thought I might be able to make money off of them, now there's an idea. :)

That would be a fantastic ebay listing. :)

That's a great sacrament meeting story! I would've laughed hard, had I been there! I'm glad that Scott does the same thing with cars at church as our son does!

I recommend ebay. (o:
