If you're my friend on facebook,
you may recall that we recently "climbed a mountain".
(If you're not my friend on facebook,
why in the world not?)
As the children were getting ready that morning,
one was poky:
Elijah was not getting dressed in a timely manner.
I said to him, as I occasionally will to the other kids,
"You need to get dressed now. You can't go to __________________ if you're
naked." (or, in your pajamas, or whatever stage of getting dressed I find them in.)
Christopher heard me say this to him and he came up to me and asked,
"Really?? Is there a sign on the mountain that says you can't climb it if you're naked?"
But it's one of Mommy's rules:
Don't climb mountains if you're naked.
It's just a good policy to live by.
