Parenting Faliures

I spoke to soon.............

Last night James told us Josh put up his middle finger.

Mom and Dad... "Josh, I hope you didn't do that"

Josh....."It was an accident"

Last night as the boys and I were watching TV, out of no where Josh tells me.. "Mom, I follow Satan."

I don't know if I should laugh or cry. (If I am honest with myself there are times I believe it.)
Brad asks Josh "do you knows who Satan is"?
Brad talks with Josh about the war in heaven. After a minute Josh says, "I follow Jesus and Satan"
Where am I going wrong. He is 4 years old. He is not suppose to know about half the stuff he does and says. So, if anyone has any ideas on how I can teach my child let me know.

It was brought to my attention that I have not posted in two weeks. Really it was all do to the after Christmas Funk!!! January comes and there is suddenly nothing really going on. So I tried to spare you all the details of the boring ins and outs of our life. Here are a few highlights for you.
*Josh has done remarkably well on his New Year Resolution. We are such proud parents.
*Brad once again got hurt playing a pick-up game of basketball and broke his leg. (Yes, same leg that was hurt about 7 months ago.) It is a clean break and he will not need surgery. I being paranoid have not let him do much. We have be carpooling to work (yes, all 4 of us). I have been so scared that his bone would move. He will be in his big robot boot for another 4 weeks.
*"Knock on Wood" we have done well keeping the germs away. I am all over the hand sanitizer on everyone. After Amy's last few posts I don't know that I could handle sick kids.
*The best news, 24 is back. I love Jack!!!
