A Lesson In "Potty Training"...


From a Place Called "I-K-E-A"

Today, my Pop-Pop and Grammy went to a store called "I-K-E-A" and they took me along for the ride. I usually like the places that they take me to but, when we got to this store, it just didn't look like the kind of place where I could have any fun. Boy, was I wrong!

After we walked around in the store for a while, we found a play area just for kids called "SMALAND". I got really excited about it, only to find out that I couldn't stay and play because I'm not "potty trained". What a bummer! I tried to explain that I'm working on the "potty thing" and I just need a little more time but, it didn't seem to matter to anyone. You either knew how to use the "pot" or you didn't. Needless to say, I was quite upset.

We continued to walk around in the store and just when I thought all hope was lost for having any fun, we found another play area... something called "The Ballroom". I've never seen so many balls in one place before! I saw kids rolling around in the balls, jumping up and down on the balls, throwing the balls, and having all kinds of fun with the balls. I was pleased to learn that there were no "potty rules" for this play area so, I joined in on the fun and had a really good time. My Grammy had to pull me out when it was time to go home and I wasn't happy about it.

Lesson Learned: I'm going back to "I-K-E-A" one day soon and, when I do, I'm going to show them a thing or two about "potty training". I've decided that I'm going to work this "potty thing" out because no "pot" is going to stand in the way of me getting into SMALAND! The Ballroom was great but, I want to move on to the next level. You can also add the name of this store to my list of new words to learn!

That's a lovely story. potty training can be a challenge but they all do it eventually. i am glad though that I am way past that stage.

PRAYER FOR CHILDREN

Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.
