First, Whit's current daytime responsibilities are taking care of two little girls, one is 4 months old and the other is 18 months old. This is perfect for the time being, for it affords me (Bryan) some practice before we begin having our own children. The other day, we were playing with the little one when Whit says to me, "Hey, will you put her on your shoulder so she can go to sleep." So, with a little look of confusion, I take Lil' E, that's what we call her, and put her on my shoulder, though, not how you moms are thinking . . . I took her and placed her up on my shoulder, like she was sitting in a chair . . . my shoulder being the chair!!!!
Whit turned around, looked at me in hysterical confusion and said, "What are you doing!?!? I meant lay her on your shoulder so she'll sleep!" My bashful response? "Oh . . . right . . . I'll get right on that . . ."
We had a good laugh at that one.
A follow up on that story: Lil' E's mom thought it was hilarious, so much so, that she came back into the Sanctuary yesterday after worship, holding Lil' E up on her shoulder, and said, "We just wanted to say by!" We laughed . . .
