Talking with the Children

I was teasing Michael tonight as we were getting ready for bed and I told him he should just go ahead and go to be with no clothes or diaper on...

"I can't do that!" he squealed. 

"Why not?" I asked him.

"Because then I'll be naked in the morning time silly!"

Telling it like it is!

Last week Harper says to me, "It's a lot of work being a mom..." Something she observed as I was making dinner/helping with homework? The she said, "What if I grow up and God gives me a baby but I'm not sure I want one?"

So, yeah, the conversations I have with Michael and the conversations I have with Harper are pretty different these days.

I love funny kid conversations. I want to know how you answered Harper! I think I would have answered "Oh! I...uh. Well, you...! Er. Or rather, if you...uh"---and so on.

One of the best things about blogging is to hear what other people's kids are saying!

Great conversations with the kids :) And like Swistle, I want to know how you answered Harper...I'd stutter over that one for sure!
