It is Lindy's blog, so it is time for another Lindy story...
The other night at church Preacher Mark (one of Lindy's favorite people) was talking about our giants. He was using the story of David and Goliath as the basis. Lindy seemed to be completely immersed with her activity but every once in a while she'd hear Mark say, "David," "slingshot," "five stones," "giant," "Goliath," or "Bethlehem," and she'd repeat them full voice--and I do mean FULL voice. We would whisper to her and confirm Mark was telling the story about David and Goliath to which she would mimic twirling a sling, act out a rock hitting the giant between the eyes, and then pretend to fall over as she was hit.
Yesterday, as I was preparing dinner, I had some Bible songs on for her. A song (I had never heard) came on about David and Goliath and as soon as she heard it she said, "Mommy a song about David and Goliath, just like Mark." What??
Of course I was a little shocked and amazed both times that she was listening and acknowledge I am proud of her. However, does this ever serve as a reminder to me as a parent. I might think this little thing who is in constant motion is not listening or paying attention but I am SO wrong. I need to remember to always be on guard and do the right thing because those little ears are really not so little and I'm thinking those eyes are seeing everything, too.
