I never thought those funny things that kids say were all that funny…until I had kids. Here’s a recent one from our table:
The Sweetie Pie has just finished reading out loud the storybook version of the book of Revelations. We have read about streets of gold, and angels singing, and no tears, and no darkness, and trees that bear fruit all year.
Sweetie Pie: What do you think? Does it sound like a nice place to be?
The Pickle: I wouldn’t want to live there. I don’t like the rain!
(The Sweetie Pie and I exchange puzzled glances and await further explanation. None seems forthcoming from the Pickle, so our reliable first born and most-experienced interpreter, the Sweet Pea, speaks up.)
Sweet Pea: Because it says God will reign forever and ever.
