Here is a conversation with Eli while driving in the car today.
Eli: "Mommy, do you not want me anymore"
Me: "Yes Eli, I want you very much and I love you"
Eli: "But I keep making messes and I don't clean them up"
Me: "It's okay, that's part of growing up, you can try to do better at that tomorrow."
Eli: "But I can't"
Me: "Yes you can, you can always try to do better the next day"
Eli: "No I can't because this is how God made me."
I had not response...he already knows how to wiggle out of work!
