they said it
(No connection to this post, just a classic Dexter face.)
I'm reading "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?" to the boys before bed. I get to the peacock page...
Dexter: Mommy, what's a peacock?
Me: (pointing to the picture) It's this big bird with all the pretty-colored feathers.
Dexter: How does THAT happen??
Pretty fair question I guess.
The kids and I are at a new friend's house. She has cooked us a beautiful traditional Ethiopian meal and we are all eating.
Me: (to the hostess) Oh wow, my husband is going to be so jealous that we are eating all this delicious food!
Dexter: I ate a lot of jealous when I was sick Mommy!
Jello, buddy. That was jello.
After asking me several pressing theological questions, Nate thought for a minute and summarized my responses like this:
"So, God is God... and Jesus. And Jesus is Jesus... and God. There are two names but they are connected?"
I think he gets it better than I do.
Nate's prayer from a few nights ago:
"Thank you God for my brother. Thank you that I have clean water. Thank you that I have a mommy and a daddy. Amen."
