The other night as we were driving home from church Jonas and I had a discussion about age:
Jonas- Mommy, how old is grandpa?
Me- He's like 50 years old!
Jonas- Then how old is daddy?
Me- He's 27.
Jonas- So, is grandpa older or daddy older?
Me- 50 is bigger than 27, so grandpa is older than daddy.
Jonas- Well, grandpa must have a REALLY big and tall house then or else his head would get stuck in the ceiling!
The conversations that I have with my kids coming to and from church are so great! We have a 20 min drive and I hear some pretty funny stuff. Sometimes on Sunday mornings when I ask about the Bible story there are blank stares, other times (usually Jonas) is bursting with every detail and just can't get the words out fast enough! He gets so excited about the lesson and talks for 20 minutes straight (w/out pausing for breath I think!). Jonas also likes to make up stories and tell them to the rest of us. I REALLY need to record them. I try to always remind him that the "cool" stories from Sunday school are real and true and are from God's Word.
I know that some of my friends keep journals to record all of the things their children say. I have good intentions of doing that, but I just never block out time to do it (and here I sit blogging!!! oops!) Does anyone else have ideas of ways to preserve these precious years? Please share!
