You look at this picture & you see the beautiful face of a one year old in her princess pajama top looking at you with a whistle in her mouth. Not so bad. Right?
Her fixation on whistles started months ago, while she was yet in her walker. She discovered the whistle that my son uses for coaching & instinctively positioned it in her mouth correctly. And so it was for MONTHS. None of us felt at all compelled to show her what a whistle can do. Basketball season ended & so did the fixation with the whistle.
She found it. While this picture makes it look like she only has it in her mouth, do not be fooled. She blew the first time quite by accident & to her delight. After that, the noise level was ear piercing & Jocelyn would not be distracted or convinced to do anything else but blow.
But look at that face. Who could have taken it away from her? Fortunate for those in ear shot, bed time was only a few hours away. Besides, it was scriptural 🙂
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. (Psalm 98:4 KJV)
