The Diary of a Godly Housewife (Pt. 31 Training the children to be “well behaved in God’s house”)
Oct. 12 1884 Sunday evening. Being wet, Tom has gone to the Tabernacle instead of me, so I am housekeeper. Dear little Lizzie is gone to bed without a whimper. She gets more good tempered as she gets older indeed never cries unless uncomfortable or in pain. She is a great delight to us all, sits up at the table and is quite one of the family. Her aunt Jennie sent her a pair of cardinal knitted socks which she has worn today. She gets too noisy for the morning service unless asleep, but today I managed to hear most of the sermon with her awake. I am not sure that I shall venture again until she can understand she must be well behaved in God’s house, a thing I trust she will early learn.
