The Things Kids Say

Since I am no longer doing monthly updates for Samantha, I thought that I would share a few things that she said today; great examples (I think) of how she's processing the world around her.

1) Samantha was getting into her Cozy Coupe car this morning, declaring that she was "going to the store to get some cookies and some exercise." (If only it were that easy!)

2) Samantha and Jake were eating Cheerios Snack Mix, which has cheerios, chex, pretzels, bagel chips, and bread twists. After inspecting a bread twist, Samantha looks at me and says "Mommy look, a cheerio turned into a french fry!"

3) Several weeks ago Samantha asked me if Jesus lives at the neighbor's house. I explained to her that Jesus lives in her heart. Tonight at bedtime we were reading a children's book of prayers, and the prayer of the night talked about Jesus being close by all of the time because Jesus lives in your heart; Jesus is love.
Samantha: "Jesus lives in my heart?"
Me: "Yes, you can show Jesus' love by being nice to other people."
Samantha: "Not when I hit Jakey".
Me: "No, that is not very nice is it?"
Samantha: "When I say please and then I get down from my chair."
Me: "Yes, saying please is a very nice thing to do."
