Noah and his 'God Book'

Last night it was bedtime for Noah, he requested his 'God Book' for his bedtime story...of course I was happy to oblige!  We usually ready a few stories from his children's Bible on the nights he asks and so far we are about half way through. The only bad thing about reading to him from his Bible is where to stop...since it isn't his usual book that we can read start to finish it is always a struggle to find a stopping point we both agree on.  After reading a few stories it was time to turn off the light and of course Noah resisted, but let me turn off the light and say goodnight.  Ten minutes later, Jon went downstairs and noticed Noah's light was on in his room...he was up 'reading' his Bible.  Jon came up to tell me about it and said 'How do you tell your kid to stop reading the Bible?'  Yikes, that's a sticky one!

Today, our neighbor stopped down for a little bit to visit.  While she was here we were talking and she said..."Oh God, Tonya you have to hear this story".  Noah took off running into his room and came back with his 'God Book' and said, "I have that book!"  (proof that you have to watch every word you say, because you never know who is listening!)  Needless to say, we both had a good chuckle over that one.
