Brought to you by the letter B

Benjamin has become rather obsessed with the letter B. He's sitting on my chair with me (relistening to General Conference because my first listen wasn't very thorough (that video about refugees—wow)) and saying, "There's a B, Mom! And there's another one! And another one!"

He looks for Bs all day long and finds them everywhere.

Last night during family scripture study he decided to begin every word he said with the letter B. The results were rather hilarious.

The scripture he was reciting was Mosiah 3:19, which really goes, "For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father."

He doesn't have that quite memorized, though, so Andrew helped him.

Andrew prompted, "For the natural man is an..."

"Benemy to Bod," Benjamin said.

"And has been from the..."

"Ball of Badam!"

"And will be..."

"Borever and bever!"

"Unless he yields to the..."

"Benticings of the Boly Birit!"

"And putteth off the..."

"Batural ban!"

"And becometh a..."


"Through the..."


"Of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a..."

"Bild! Bubissive, beek, bumble, batient, bull of buz, billing to bubit to ball bings!"

"Which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a..."

"Bild both bubit to bis bother!"

Oh, man! We were rolling with laughter by the end (as irreverent as that is)—beek, bumble, batient, bull of buz, indeed! Willing to submit to our "bother!"

At least he's memorizing scriptures...right?


  1. Oh, yeah, and after all of that Andrew said, "What's your favourite letter, Benjamin?"

    Benjamin paused for a minute and then shouted, "X!"
