Don't Be So Chintzy with the Nutella

This is so suburban. I love it. I mean, come on -- making s'mores with an electric range? At least the marshmallows aren't being microwaved, that's simply inhumane.

"Coercive Technique" used in Jesse Tree Reading

Our Jesse Tree reading for today was I Kings 3:3-28. That's where Solomon asks God for wisdom, then figures out who the real hooker mom is by threatening to chop the baby in half. I remembered joking to myself, "Wow, there's an advanced interrogation method if I ever saw one." I guess it's a good thing we have DNA testing now.

I also remembered to leave out the word "harlot" when I read the story to my kids. I didn't feel like being interrogated by an agressive five-year-old on what that word means.
