Patience is not his virtue

6yo son: "Mom you know all those toys you have in the box that you were going to get rid of?"

Me: "Yes"

6yo son: "Well, I want to sell them in the front yard, because Devon and Jordan have alot of money and I want alot to."

Me: But, honey I was going to give those away to people for free"

6yo son: "Well, if they dont have any money I will give it to them, but if they do they can pay up"

Me: Snicker...O.K.....go ahead"

He sets up the toys in a straight row on the sidewalk in front of our home and proceeds to wait.

Me: "So honey, what are you going to be selling them for?"

6yo son: "One hundred and ninty nine dollars, so that I can buy that go-cart"

Me: "Oh my, you may want to start out at 25 cents and work your way up."

6yo son: "Mom no one has come yet, were are they? Do you think I should stand at the corner, wave and say, Toys for sale over here"

Me: " honey, just wait a while and someone will show up, you must be patient.

Me: "Honey why are you in here, you need to be watching your toy sale."

6yo son: "Oh, Im done with that, no one showed up. There has got to be a faster way to earn a hundred and ninty nine dollars!"

Me thinking to self: well there is but its usually not legal.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
