In anticipation of what was sure to occur on this Sabbath day, I took the following preemptive action.
Me (to Jade): I think we should sit down and make a list of what would be appropriate Sunday activities. Like drawing or writing letters or learning about our ancestors.
Jade: What about going outside to play with Mallory?
Me (skeptical): Explain to me how that is an appropriate Sunday activity.
Jade (In her best beauty-pageant-contestant voice): Well, it would give me an opportunity to see the beauty that is all around us in this world.
Well played, Jade.
