Don't make Jesus Angry!

My daughter is spending the week with Grandma and Grampa this week. Thursday is settling in and I'm starting to get very impatient for her return. I thought as a tribute I would share one my favorite conversations with her.

She was about 4 or 5 at the time and had just started going to Catechism Classes. We were in Target and she had been running around so I stuck her in the cart. She then started to beg for a new toy or something of the sort.

"No," I said to her. "You have not been behaving yourself. We don't buy toys for little girls who are naughty."

"But mommy," she began reasoning. "Jesus wants me to have a toy."

"Yeah?" I said.

"Yes, and if you don't listen to Jesus you will make him angry. It's naughty to make Jesus angry!" She explained with such eloquence. "So you NEED to buy me a toy."

Ahhhhh....young children. She's quite creative when it comes to getting her way. I seriously had to fight back laughter at that point. At least I know she was listening in class!

How funny! Kids say the funniest things and are so much smarter than we give them credit for!

Elizabeth...that is what I have ALWAYS wanted her to be when she grows up. LOL She sure is a smooth talker that's for sure!

Sherrinda...this girl deserves tons of credit. Sometimes I thinks she's even smarter than me! LOL

That's adorable. I can't wait for Brogan to start talking so I can hear what his little mind thinks up. :)
