Many of us are familiar with the scripture at Deuteronomy 6:6,7. It discusses inculcating God's laws on your child's heart. The boys and I were discussing that scripture a couple of weeks ago during our daily text. We talked about what the word 'inculcate' means--to repeat, to say again and again, to impress.

Then I explained to them that this is why Mommy and Daddy tell them the same things all the time. It's part of our job. When they say, "I knoooow, I knoooow" I understand that they know, but I'm 'inculcating' so that I know they know. LOL

Anyway, while we were outside this past weekend (glorious by the way!) something happened that caused me to give them a speech. I don't remember exactly what it was. It had something to do with their behavior with the neighbor's grandson. Towards the end of my speech, Tigger lets out with this one:

"Mommy, I think you're inculcating us."

"Yes, Tigger, that's exactly what I'm doing. That's my job."
