Sophie looked at me the other day and said, "This is a mean-it thing!"
It took me a few seconds to realize that she has a hard time remembering the word "serious", so she simply makes a logical substitution.
"Mama, I'll put this on my fantasy."
"You mean your vanity?"
"Well, you can call it a vanity, Mama, but I will call it my fantasy!"
"Mama, is Christmas *really* Jesus' birthday?"
(They celebrated Jesus' birthday in her Bible class in December and must have made reference to this question.)
"Well, Sophie, we don't actually know what day He was born, but we know it was in winter. So we should celebrate it all the time."
"Why don't we just pray about when His birthday was? I'm going to pray about it right now:
Dear God, when was Jesus' birthday? Amen!"
"Mama, I like two - no, three(!) healthy things:
Grilled cheeses, and
Oh, and bread!"
