Some days I am amazed at how much my children have already been able to decipher about the world. Then they come out with random things like this, from R, that remind me we still have a long way to go:
"Mama, when I am twelve will you let us go to Afwica so we can see da weal koala bears? If we wait until we are twelve we can watch Star Wars while we fly on dat plane for a long time. Will you let us do that Mama?"
Oh, those sweet little brains! I cannot help thinking God must similarly shake his head lovingly at the crazy plans we bring to Him for approval.
R did follow up by asking if we could find our Compassion children while we were there. I was so pleased with his big heart until he added, "And then when we see Esther and Tewodros can you give me A LOT of your paper money to give them?"
This is from the same child who insists on being self sufficient at every opportunity, yet informed us this weekend that he was NOT going to go to college one day. "I want to just stay living wiff you instead."
And using all my paper money I suppose. :-)
