This is my first installment of "KidBits". Grandparents and loved ones are always asking about what the kids are up to, and since they change and grow everyday, I'm sure I will have many entries dedicated to them.
Yesterday when I went to get my daughter up for a nap she brought her Cinderella book up to me and said she had a question. "Mom, why is "God" in the Cinderella book?" I had to look where she was pointing, then I realized the word was "Godmother", but she ignored the "mother" part. I thought back to earlier that day when we were practiced writing the uppercase "G", and then how we were reading a kids Bible and learning about Noah. This girl is smart! She really picks up on things. Then she asked, "Do God and Jesus live together in Heaven?", after I said "Yes" she said "I think God has a friend - Jesus!". I know the concept of God and his Son is a bit over her head (it is over mine at times too), but I am amazed by the honest and simple observations of a child.
My 15 month old son loves to eat goldfish crackers. Recently I had bought the kind that had starfish shapes, and when I pour a handful out on his high chair tray, he will go straight for the starfish first. I have noticed my daughter does too. Maybe, like the green M&Ms, the starfish crackers just taste better!
We are going on a spontaneous camping trip to Willow Lake today until Saturday. I hope to post some photos from that trip when we get back. Happy 4th of July!
