Perpetual Weekend

Lily came down to the kitchen as I prepared my lunch of sandwich and chips. She saw how I was dressed and what I was doing and asked me if I was going to work. She was sad to learn that I was. I explained to her that I had to go to work to make money, etc. But she protested that Friday was my last day.

When we got back from Charleston I told her that I had to go to work Thursday and Friday, but that Friday would be my last day before the weekend. We had a great weekend where we spent a lot of time together and we played quite a bit too. She didn't understand that the weekend only lasts two days and then it's back to work.

I like Lily's system, but she's going to have to get used to weekends ending on Monday morning.

Taking Care of Little Brother

Lily likes to have pretend dialogs with her little brother. She'll say, "Sweet Pea!" and Amanda will reply, "Yes, big sister?" Before breakfast she asked today if he was kicking and Amanda said no, but that he was hungry. Lily reassured him by saying, "Don't you worry. Mommy will feed you soon."

Getting Clothed

After breakfast this morning Lily asked Amanda, "When Jesus came back to life, where did he get his robe?" This is a good question. Amanda reasoned that if God could clothe us He could take care of Jesus. That's as good an answer as I could give. I'll run that past my Systematic Theology professor and see what he says.

It's amazing the stuff she thinks about.

Being Creative

One time I was at a friend's house for dinner with Lily. As sometimes happens. she decided that she had to go poo-poo after the meal. She was using their half bathroom which was in earshot of the living room where everyone was sitting. Lily made all kinds of straining noises. I let it go for a while as she is often very dramatic about pooping. After a while I had to ask her what the deal was.

Lily responded, "I'm trying to make a duck."

Teaching My Class

We enjoyed a nice dinner outside on Sunday evening in our little screened gazebo. Lily was saying something about Jesus and I don't recall if I asked her something or said something about it. Either way, her response was, "No, no, no daddy, you don't understand..."

I suggested that she come and teach my Systematic Theology class on Sunday night.

In the Beginning...

Lily has a nice hardcover copy of "T'Was the Night Before Christmas" that she likes to carry around in her little shopping cart. One day as she was playing with it she announced to us that the little book was her Bible and that we were going to have Bible study. She started by saying, "In the beginning..." and then as she opened it up and saw the pictures she said, "...God created Santa"
