Daddy's a "So forth"

Tonight for family home evening, we were practicing our Articles of Faith with the kids (for those who don't know, we all have 1-9 memorized, including 3 year old Briggs. He is a bit of a whiz when it comes to memorizing things.) After we had practiced #6, which ends, ". . . apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists and so forth," they asked what an evangelist was. I told them it was a patriarch, which is someone who gives blessings. Briggs said, "Oh. And what does 'so forth' mean?" After giving him a brief definition Ashlynn matter-of-factly stated, "Daddy's a 'so forth' because once he poured oil on my head and gave me a blessing." And Briggs said, quite supportively, "Yeh. And I'm a 'so forth' because during Primary I go back and forth between the drinking fountain and the Primary Room."
Out of the mouths of babes.

I'm so glad you're posting their funny and clever sayings! As an Aunt, I've always tried to keep record since I know parents don't always have time. But I haven't been able to keep up! Thanks for sharing,
Mae
