That Cole

The boys were at my mom's for date night last night and, thanks to a generous Poppy, had a lot of junk to eat. Finally, my mom put her foot down when Cole asked for another piece of candy and said, "Not before eating some food." Cole agreed to a (what else) peanut butter sandwich. After my mom fixed it for him, he broke it in half and gave the half to Jonah and then broke his own half again and gave the piece to Judah. He asked for the candy and my mom says, "You didn't eat your sandwich, you gave it away, so no."

Cole, who is very full of expression when he talks, says, using both hands to illustrate, "The picture on my refrigerator at home with my Bible verse says I should do to others like I want done *. Mimi, I'm just trying to love my people."

I'm sure she gave in.

That Cole!

* The verse we are memorizing is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Luke 6:31
