Since the last posts have been heavy-ish, it's time to whip out some good ol' E stories to lighten the mood.
(yesterday, on our way to church)
E: Momma, are you thinking about Nanny?
me: Not right now, why... are you?
E: Yes. I'm thinking that she's probably having a snack.
me: What do you think she's having?
E: She's probably having a sandwich with Jesus.
(upon retelling this story later to Dan, he, too, said he envisions heaven this way. complete with sandwiches.)
(today, on the way home from school, with friend- Nate- in the backseat)
Nate: I dropped it! (some noodle thing he had)
E: It's okay, Nathan...
Nate: Is God down there? (in the hole where the noodle thing fell.)
E: Yep. He's everywhere. But you can't really see Him.
Nate: Why not?
E: Because He's that big.
Nate: I'm taller than God.
E: Maybe... but probably not.
(most every day)
E: Daddy/Mommy... are you going to read me a Bed-Night Story?
E: I have sugar bumps! (Shiver bumps.)
E: I'm so tired... I can't wait to fall wide asleep.
How I love this girl.
