Some Funny Things I Heard This Week

"This is better than Rhode Island!" after tasting a homemade dressing that a sister had made. (I think you mean THOUSAND Island.)

"Quit eating worms! I don't care if your sister gives you a dime for each one." those words actually came out of my mouth?!

"Those are NOT pretty pictures!" when asked if The Boy would like to see some pics of how lactation occurs since he had asked about it.

"After a guy marries you, AFTER he marries you, I am going to tell him all about you. " a brother to his sister after an altercation.

"Who bought the chicken-flavored ham?" after looking at a package of deli meat, we had only bought ham for over a year.

"Oh, we were excited because we thought the preacher was coming. But it was only his wife." The best one this week!

God is Your Father

She was listening to her daughter and her friend Agnes at the table. Agnes, "I wish your mom was my mom." The mother felt sad for a moment and then kinda liked the idea that another child thought she was a good mom. Then she heard her own child say, "I wish YOUR mom was MY mom." So much for the warm fuzzies.

A little later in the conversation, Agnes asks, "Do you know who my dad is?" This precious girl truly did not know. "I know it isn't Bob, (the man her mother is living with), maybe it is Bruce (a man she calls her uncle). Do you know who it is?" "No." Agnes responds, "I will go ask your mom." At which point the child asks her friend's mother, "Do you know who my dad is?"

What do you say to that? A simple "no" just seemed so insuffcient. A "go ask your mom" didn't seem appropriate either. She heard herself answer the child, "God is your Father." The child paused, then a smile lit up her face as she skipped out to play. "Yes, God is my Father!"

Where is Your Brother?

Has anyone seen your little brother? Anyone? Where is he?
What is that noise in the kitchen? Did you put your lunch dishes away?

Happy Birthday Josiah!
