Beware Of Putting Limits On Dessert

The kids and I were looking at a book today that showed a picture of the sinuses. Since we’ve all been dealing with heads full of snot for the past few weeks they were enthralled at the large area that was covered. They were excited to make sense of the pressure that they felt in their faces and to trace their finger over the spots that the picture showed. And one of the kids said, “Boy, that’s like a whole face full of snot.”

“Yeah,” I said, amazed at how intricately it was all mapped out and linked together. “I’m sure God had a reason for putting it all together like that when he made us. I’m just not sure what it is.”

And Malachi piped in with this little nugget, “Well you can ask him when you see him in Heaven…..that is if you’re going there.”

Hello? Does that mean he thinks I’m going to Hell? Dang it, I knew I should have given him that bigger serving of dessert he asked for.

LOLOLOL... Don't you just love kids and their logic?
What a sweetie... and maybe you better start topping that dessert up, if you know what's good for you!
*snort*

That cracked me up- the things they say. I often wonder what others think of me if they only have my children's version to go by" "she shuffles around in her slippers, and yells "coats, boots, get to the van!" all day long...

Kids say the best things

One time my grandma was explaining to my younger sister (about 4 at the time)that everyone sinned. And my sister's response to her statement was, "yeah, especially grandmas!"

You make me smile...thanks for everything you do!

You'd better be there 'cause I will!

Each time we receive a straightforward messege from Malachi, I remember that we named that kid "Messenger of God." Do you think he's practicing for some kind of future work in God's house? I hope he can temper his dad's intensity with his mom's humor. "...ask him when you get there..." That's our boy.
