Asher had been playing in his room on his own. The timer dings to signal that playtime is over, and I hear a dresser drawer shut. I take my time in going upstairs because sometimes he starts picking up his toys before I go to his room.

This time, though, he has emptied one of his dresser drawers. Clothing all over the floor. I guess he closed the dresser drawer because he thought he was being helpful? Or maybe he thought he’d hide the truth: that he had been playing in his dresser when he shouldn’t have been.

It was one of those parenting moments when you know you shouldn’t laugh, but you have to leave the room in order to let out a little giggle.

Children are so innocent. And yet they still need a Saviour. They need to be taught the truth: how to behave, what to do and what not to do. But they don’t need to be taught how to enjoy life.

Asher sure had a good time pulling clothing out of his dresser… even though I’d told him not to. But he didn’t do a good job of hiding it.
