I was planning to write this post on irresistible grace but I thought I ‘d wait until I finish that chapter in Grace Unknown. However, as soon as I wrote that title, something else popped into my head even though it really has nothing to do with grace and everything to do with irresistible-ness.
The other day, David was
playing in his bed taking his afternoon nap, when I heard him call. Not knowing when The Boy had gone to bed, I asked Mom if it was time for him to wake up. No, it was not- go tell him to go to sleep. As soon as I entered his room, he looked at me with his big puppy eyes. I told him it was not time to get up. He said, “But, Kimmy, I don’t like nap time.” “I know, buddy, but Kimmy likes nap time.” Then he looked at me, all snuggly in his bed, and said, “Kimmy will you snuggle with me a little bit?” Irresistible. Oh, just a minute…
A few minutes after I left him, I heard him calling again. I went and told Mom that The Boy was NOT going to go to sleep. She told me to tell him to rest quietly for 15 more minutes. Once again, I entered his room and saw his now red and teary eyes. Manipulation, I see. “David, Mommy says you have to rest quietly for 15 more minutes and then you can get up.” “Kimmy, I love you. You’re my baby. Will you snuggle me?”
*sigh* A giving- in sigh.
I love that boy, stinker and all 😛
