You know you're raising your kids in the South, when...

I apologize if you are tiring of my kid stories. This is my little place where it's easy to catalogue and record the incidental happenings in our lives. Keeps it all packaged up for me to print and save. So, here's one more for the record:

You may recall a story about a delightful band called "The Worship Leaders"; well, I haven't heard anything new from them in a while so I thought perhaps there was dissension in the ranks again. However, Cameron told me today that he wanted to sing something for me. So, I stopped and listened while he sang a little two-line ditty for me. It went something like this, "Who in tarnation can rule the Nations? His name is God." I had to hide my surprise and amusement while I asked 'where did you hear that?'

"Oh, me and Sissy wrote it." (excuse grammar, please)

I didn't even know my kids knew the word tarnation. It may be time to "get out of Dodge".

I can't believe you don't know where they picked up the word tarnation. It's not like their mother isn't the Vocabulary Queen.

That's hilarious! You might have a Dottie Rambo on your hands!
(BTW, I think we need to plan a summer trip to Louisville!)

Don't you dare stop the kid stories, I love them. I'm thinking your kiddos may even be more talented at song writing than their Momma. "Lord of the Nation" is better than "God made the Grass" Maybe not quite as good as "God Gave Them Over", but they are young.:)
