On Passing Notes in Church...

Sam is five now.  I have LOVED this age with all of my kiddos!  This summer he hit the stage that I really, really love - when kids start trying to sound out and spell words.  There is nothing cuter than watching them write words the way they think they sound!  And then it's so much fun to look at what they've written and then figure out what they meant to say. Adorable!   

One Sunday morning this summer he sat by me in church, got into my purse, and pulled out a pen and a small pad of paper.  Then he wrote me a note.  He gave it to me with the biggest, sweetest smile!  Then he said, "I love you Mom!"  It was such an adorable moment.  I really love this kid! 

Then I looked down and this is what I saw.

You and I might read it as "I F U Mom Moon." Precious, right?  In actuality, he was saying "I love you."  And, if I really think hard, and ignore the L in word love, then I can admit that the word love does indeed have a strong "f" sound.  It's a big stretch, but I'm going with it! 

I'm thinking we should start discouraging passing notes in church!  Either way, I'm keeping this note tucked in my Bible because it makes me giggle every time I look at it!    Such a silly kid!
