Scripture Lingo

This is one of those "great lines" that just needs to get written down. We were reading scriptures one morning as a family and Parker is doing really well as he is learning to read in sounding out words. On one of his turns to read he was reading 2 Nephi 9:23 "And he commandeth all men that they must repent, and be baptized in his name, having perfect faith....." So as he got to the word baptized, he stalled and wasn't really trying to sound it, so I whispered in his ear as a hint to the word "to be dunked in the water", so he read, "And he commandeth all men that they must repent, and be dumped in the water......" He took me literally for every word, I thought he'd just realize I meant the word baptized. We all could not help but get a good laugh out of that one.
