He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

Honesty is not always the best policy

So yesterday, the boys are watching shows on the Cartoon Network.  I'm in the kitchen cleaning up from lunch when a commercial for the Shake Weight comes on.  Now I will start by saying that my kids think they need EVERYTHING they see from the cupcake lollipop maker to the touch and brush.  But they didn't think they needed the Shake Weight.  No.  They thought I did.

Adam:  "Mommy, you should get that."
Me:  "Oh I should, should I?"
Adam:  "Yes."
Me: "Why do you think I should get that?"
Adam:  "Well...  Your arms are kinda big.  I think your arms are big don't you?"
Me:  "Thanks Adam."
Adam:  "Well they are.  They are like this big."  (As he puts his hands together to make a circle.)

Oh you have to love the honesty in children.  Right?
