This morning Delton was laying in bed with me and wanted to know the meaning of the following words:
1. Delton: Mommy, what does guard mean?
Mommy: It means to watch and make sure something doesn’t happen to something
2. Delton: Mommy, what does jealous mean?
Mommy: It’s when you want something someone else has, but you can’t have it
3. Delton: Mommy, what does soldier mean?
Mommy: A soldier is someone who protects other people so they won’t get hurt.
I hope I gave him the correct 3 year old definitions. Where does he come up with this stuff.
I have been working very hard setting up for VBS. I’m in charge this year and it is driving me nuts!!!! So, I asked one of my friends daughters to tag along with me to church and play with the kids, while I did some VBS stuff. While getting out of the car this is Delton’s conversation with a soon to be 9th grader.
” Do you know Jesus died on the cross? He went to Heaven and we don’t know when he will come back. That’s the reason for the holiday, Easter, did you know that? There were some bad men who didn’t like Jesus so they took him and hung him on the cross.”
I guess he is absorbing more than we think while we are at church. That is the season of Easter in a 3 year old nut shell. He never mentioned the Easter bunny once. I thought chocolate bunnies were the reason for the season – I”M JUST JOKING!!!!
