Man, I have laughed so hard today. Corinnea told this HISTERICAL story about her animals and their interesting personalities, Jenny P had a great story about Emily's inquisitive nature, and one of the other blogs I read posted about her kids understanding of time. So, in the spirit of "funny stories about our kids day"... here's how our day ended:
Me: Let's say our prayers.
Ethan: God can't hear me.
Me: Yes he can.
Ethan: But I can't hear him. He doesn't talk to me with his mouth.
Me: When Jesus lives in your heart (yeah, trying to explain that to a kid... challenging) you learn to hear him.
Ethan: (alarmed) Jesus can't live in my heart! He'll break it! He's too big!
Me: But He sends the Holy Spirit to live in your heart and he talks to you in your mind. (Treading on dangerously complicated topics here)
Ethan: He can't talk to me in my head! He'll make my head bleed!
Oh my. I eventually convinced him that life with Jesus was a GOOD thing, but wow it was tricky there for a few minutes! Now he's decided to try to fly to Heaven in an airplane, which actually dissolved into a whine about going on the airplane to see PawPaw. So cute!
