While shopping in the produce section the other day after a few moments of silence:
Luke: “God has everything in His hands, Mommy!”
Me: “Yes, He sure does!”
Luke: “But what if He drops it??”
Luke burned his hand Tuesday on a hot pan while helping me make grilled cheese. His little pinky got it the worse and it blistered or ‘has a bubble on it’ as Luke says. Well, Luke hates the bubble. I think it freaks him out and so he obsesses over it (wonder who he gets that from??). So last night, after dinner, he was worried about taking the band aid off to get in the bath because he would have to look at it. I kept telling him not to worry about it and to just not look at it! A few minutes later he came back to the kitchen and said,
“God’s going to help me not look at it. I just prayed and asked Him.”
Bless his little heart!
Just today these conversations happened:
Luke: “Mommy, I’m going to cut your hair.” (goes and gets his tool set which also doubles as a scissors, brushes and clippers)
Me: “Ok, sounds good.”
Luke: “Don’t worry Mommy, I won’t use the hammer.”
Eli decided not to take a nap today and I didn’t get a shower this morning. So, I asked the boys after their afternoon snack if they could be good while I hopped in the shower.
Luke: “Nope, I don’t think so. Watch.”
He goes over and pushes Eli in the floor.
It was so hard not to laugh. At least he was honest. And no, I didn’t get a shower.
Oh and Eli has a new phrase:
“Oh, meh!” (Oh, Man!)
