The Replacement...

For the last week and a half, Emma has eaten her dinner like an obedient, non-confrontational child.  In the past this has not been her normal demeanor. See pic to the left for her normal demeanor.

The other night, Luke asked her, "Who are you and what have you done with my Emma?"

Emma without missing a beat replied, "I am the replacement."

Luke asked, "Well, where's the old Emma?"

Emma once again without hesitation and a bit of mystery/spunk in her voice said, "She is on a Mission."

Totally cracked us up.  And the even better part is, whenever she starts to struggle with her attitude or wanting to be obedient, I ask her, "Are you the replacement or the old Emma?"  She usually concedes to being the replacement and changes her attitude to a more positive one.  Heavenly Father must have heard my "at the end of my rope" pleas! :)
