My Mom Calls Me Heifer!


Over the course of the last 30 days, Tiffany and I have spent about 17 of them away from home. It’s been tiring for sure. But the hardest part has been leaving our girls. We are grateful for wonderful friends who not only want to keep our girls while we’re away… But they actually call and ask us if they CAN keep them. 

But with one more trip to go – these last few days to Baltimore… We decided to take the girls with us. And it’s been a blast. We’ve had meetings all day with great Pastors from 3 different states. But in between those meetings we’ve been able to spend a lot of time with our girls. 

Well last night was one of the craziest, funniest meals I have been a part of in a long time. And in large… It was because of my girls!

We decided to go to a Hibachi Grill. You know… Where they cook in front of you. And we went with great friends. 

We ate entirely too much food and got stuffed. Well most of us. Megan, my Missions Coordinator, would not stop eating! It was hilarious! But out of nowhere… In a quiet moment in the restaurant… My daughter yells…

My Mom Calls Me Heifer!

At that moment the restaurant lost its mind. People were laughing everywhere. Tiffany turned a new shade of red. And I was choking on rice. It was random. It was funny. 

She was referring to moments when SHE eats a lot at home. Tiffany will play around with her and say… “Wow heifer… Can you really eat more!” We play like that around our house a lot. 

That one came back to bite us. 

Life Lesson: Be careful what you say around your kids. Because at the worst time possible… They will say exactly what you’ve taught them!
