evidence that my children remember only 50% of what I teach them

scene one — good health

child:  Mom, why is alcohol bad for you?  It doesn’t have caffeine in it, does it?

scene two — the law of sacrifice

parent:  In the Old Testament, God’s people remembered the Savior by sacrificing animals.  What do we do now?

child:  We treat animals kindly.

[In case you’re confused, the correct answer would have been that we take the sacrament each week to remember the Savior’s sacrifice.]

    Deary, at least they are remembering positive things. My kids are holy terrors at the moment and I have PMS. Not a good combination even 50% of the time.

    Haha this totally reminds me of when Trav and I taught the Sunbeams in Omaha. I was always afraid what they would tell their parents when they asked them, “So what did you learn in church today?”
