Menu: September 3-9

Princess has been coming up with some good ones lately. Some make me laugh out loud and others just have me shaking my head. Here's an example of her latest:

Aug 30, 2007
Princess came up to me in the kitchen with a water gun.

“Mommy, do you want to get killed?”

“No, not really.”

“But Mommy, you know that one day you are going to die. Because that’s what happens when you get really old … you die. Like Meagan’s Sunshine (her friend's dog) just did.”


Now, one would think (after all we are missionaries you know) that I would jump on this opportunity to have a lengthy (or at least pointed) discussion with my child about death, eternity, salvation etc. Sadly, I just stood there speechless and shook my head as I continued making supper and she skipped merrily off to the living room. Wow! The mysteries of the 4 year old mind!

Now-- on to the menu for the week. We'll see if I can stick to it this week.
