Bedtime Stories

I tucked Shawn in bed and was ready to read the book he had chosen. He told me we were going to read 2 stories tonight . . . one book and one Book of Mormon story without a book. This was news to me so I went with the safest one I had from memory.
After telling Shawn a little bit about Lehi and his family. . . specifically Laman and Lemuel and how they were always complaining when their Dad asked them to do anything . . . Shawn had a really concerned look. He said that if he were in that family, he would punch Laman and Lemuel in the face
(and he demonstrated a punch in the air).
I told him we wouldn't want to do that because it wouldn't be very nice. We should just ask them to be nice and not complain so much.
He listened to what I said and then put his hand over his mouth and giggled saying,
"I like my way better."
