Constipated



As many of you know, S has been having some "potty" issues for a year or so now. So there's quite a bit of talk about constipation around our house, but it's probably not a word most 7 years old throw around.

Today she was asked to give the scripture in Primary. She was very excited and parlayed it into more of a talk, giving lots of background information about the story. Then she got to the scripture, which she read (nearly) perfectly: Genesis 41: 29-30. "Behold there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt; And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall CONSTIPATE (instead of consume) the land."

I was up at the microphone with her, to help if needed. I totally lost it and was trying to not let the kids see how hard I was laughing, but the tears were flowing. Luckily, only the adults caught her mistake, so most were able to control their laughs. She really needs to learn to read more than the first three letters of a word!

I also just had a similar reaction to yours Sara, although I am not by a microphone and in front of lots of people, just my computer.
