Conversations with kids

Daniel -- "Samuel, I run really fast!"
Samuel -- "Are you faster than God?"
Daniel -- "well, no"
Samuel -- "are you faster than Jesus?"
Daniel -- "no"
Samuel -- "then you're not that fast"!


We were talking at dinner about how there may be some 18 or 20 year old young man out there who could one day be Emily's husband. Or there may be a baby down the street or across the world that one of the boys may end up marrying. Since it isn't that unusual for women to marry guys who are a bit older than they are, "because girls tend to be more mature" . . . to which Levi got his "yuck face" look and said "we're not less mature, we just don't use it!"


The kids had dentist appointments a few days ago.
Levi: "The dentist left me sitting in the dentist chair for 45 minutes, waiting . . . with nothing to do -- except play with Mr Sucky!" (the water suction hose)
