Tiny Talk with Lydia





Lydia came in holding her baby close. Sweetie Pie had been MIA for over a month now, I found her over that weekend on Chris' top bunk... AKA the hidden toy chest:)

Me: Are you taking good care of Sweetie Pie.

Lydia (4 yrs) : It's Sarah, not Fweetie Pie! [shaking head her] No one knows her right name. You and Daddy keep calling her Fweetie Pie!

LOL.... it's getting harder to keep up with everyone's dolls and their names;)

************************************************************************

We had a sweet church member pass away last week! It's been a hard summer :/

After the family meal Sunday afternoon, Lydia was talking to me...

Lydia: Everyone is sad about Mr Jule, but I'm not sad he died?

Me: really, why? (her words kind of surprised me by I tried to not be too surprised so I could understand what she was trying to tell me!)

Lydia: Mr Jule was sick and now he's in heaven. And heaven is a better place to be. His family is sad because they miss him, but they should be happy that he's in heaven.

Oh.... the sweet, simple, trusting faith of children!!

************************************************************************

and the kids' favorite phrase this week....

You've got to be kidding me!

Usually said after I give them an assignment they think is really easy (Chris practicing his math facts!) or that they don't want to do (like wipe off the kitchen table) !
