Setting the Record Straight!

This is my friend Richard and I...



Richard is ONE OF A KIND and is one of my closest friends...he and his awesome wife volunteered to come down from Utah to babysit for us while Brandon and I went to CA for the Ragnar Race and to get away. Well...while we were gone there was a little mishap with Paul that occured during church. Let me remind you that my kids, when Brandon and I are here, are pretty dang good in church, but that was NOT the case while we were gone. Go ahead and laugh as you read the following...

Richard and Cherilyn were brave enough to take 11 kids to church while we were gone. I reassured Richard that our kids were practically perfect during sacrament meeting and that the only issue that might arise would be Paul being naughty during Primary. Well, I was WRONG. Just like the saying, 'while the cats away the mice will play', this was exactly what my Paul did. He was ALL over the place. Climbing under and over the pews, fighting with the kids, and just flat out not listening or behaving. Richard trying to keep his cool, was being very patient with Paul, but Paul wouldn't budge. Paul once again crawled under the pew and Richard reached under the bench and grabbed his leg to pull him out and put him back on the bench when Paul yelled at the top of his lungs...

'GET YOUR HANDS OFF ME YOU PERVERT!!'

According to Richard it echoed through the chapel, even stopping the speaker and causing him to look over at them. Richard was devistated!! He called me all worried that everyone in our ward was gonna think he was a pedophile!! I reassured him that eventhough everyone in our ward didn't know him, they know Paul, and know that he is beyond a handful!!!

So for all of you that were there and heard it...I PROMISE you that Richard Petty is NOT a pervert...matter of fact he is one of the most kind and loving people you could ever meet.

I'm laughing my head off!!!!!!!!!

It also makes me feel a little better to hear that your kids had an issue in Sacrament...even if it was when you were away from them. : ) Now I know you're all human. I'm still reaching and reaching to be as cool as you, though.

:) I love it. Kids are awesome and they say the funniest things at the most inappropriate times.
Paul is a champ (even though I don't really know him).
