Out Of The Mouth Of....

Our elementary school is doing their annual arts contest.  This year the theme is, "The World Would Be A Better Place If....." leaving the end to be interpreted by the young artists.

While trying to brainstorm ideas with Matthew he became increasingly overwhelmed and angry because he didn't know what he was going to do for his entry.  I told him to go to his room until he was able to calm down.  As he stomped up the stairs he shouted,

"The world would be a better place if I had a new mom."


Fast forward a couple days.  I asked Billy what he thought I do all day while he and his siblings are at school.  His answer: Watch TV.

(Double Ouch!)

*(I started teaching 1st grade Religious Ed this week)

Me: Would you kids like to see my Bible?  I've had this since I was a kid.
Student: Wow, that's old.

*I was talking to the students about how we all want to live in Heaven with Jesus.
Student: I don't.  I'm not dead.

I guess I should have said "someday."

My Bible-Circa 1984

  5. Hi Kathleen! I remember when my son and daughter left for the bus. I was sitting in a recliner, and they came over to kiss my goodbye. When they came home from school, there I was in the recliner. My son asked, "Did you sit in that chair all day?"

    Don't feel like the Lone Ranger :)
