Great Importance To The Small People

It's so funny to hear what is importance to kids.

Last week, I was driving to my mother's house with my son (6), his friend (7), and my daughter (5) to take them swimming. Her pool is clean and bigger than mine. They are talking in the backseat and then I hear my son say, "Nu uh! Katie you're lying!" Then I hear his friend say, "My dad took a string and yanked out my tooth!" Then I hear my son say, "This tooth right here is loose! It's going to come out any day now." So, I stop listening to them and start listening to the radio. Then again I hear my son say, "Katie! You're only 5! You're lying!" He's getting really upset. Then I say, "Hey, what's going on back there." Kaleb, my son says, "Katie said she has a loose tooth and I haven't even had a loose tooth! She's lying." I had to laugh. Here these kids are getting upset over who has a loose tooth and who doesn't.

Oh the days when that's all I had to worry about.

Leslie, Thanks for visiting my blog. We seem to be very much alike, don't we. Difference is, my youngest is 15. Just wait till you get there and listen in on the conversations. I thank God my girls are good...really, thank God.

I don't know that I want to hear their conversations when they are teenagers... EEK!
