Heart stopping action here at the Gardners today...
So, the kids were upstairs playing computer, and came down when I called. Huh. What are the chances?
Habtamu said that Yordanos had said a "bad word" upstairs. (We'd talked earlier today about how even if Mommy doesn't hear something, God still does.) So I entered into Mommy mode and said "Well, God already knows what you said, so you may as well tell me." Habtamu kept urging her to "Just tell her! Tell her! Tell her! God already knows."
Finally, Yordanos whispered it to me.
The bad thing she called Habtamu? "Bad boy."
Oh, the sweetness! If only that were the worst bad word they will ever hear.
