Green Kids

I was snuggling Lee (age 4) before I put him to bed tonight. We were singing "Jesus Loves The Little Children".

Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world,
They are precious in his sight,
Red and yellow, black and white,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Lee: "Does Jesus and God love green children?"

Me: "Ummmm, I don't think he made any green children."

Lee: "Why not?"

Me: "Ummmm ... Well ... ummm, well, grass is green. And there's lots of grass in yards, and remember how we talked about camaflouge and good hiding when we were playing with Easter eggs, well, umm, it might be hard for their mommies to find them."


Lee: "I know! God could make their feet a different color, and write their names on the bottom of their feet so their mommies could tell them apart!"

Me: "When you are very very old and go to Heaven, you be sure to talk to God about that."

Lee: "I've got some other ideas for him, too."

I shudder to think what other ideas Lee has!


Ahh Lucy, how I miss those days with my son Dean and Gary. Such precious treasures us Mommies hold in our hearts.

Lee, you be sure to pray for your Mommy everyday honey, everyday! Jesus loves you and I do to even tho' I have not met you yet.

This song always brings the memory of my oldest (now 5) when she was almost 2. We often sang Jesus Loves the Little Children at bed time. One night she sleepily looked up and said "Did they have crayons?" Thinking she might be talking in her sleep, I replied "Who, honey?". "The children of the world, Mommy." OK, now I'm really baffled. Crayons?! "Why would they have crayons, sweetie?" Total look of exasperation that only an almost-2-yr-old going on 15 can have, "red and yellow, black and white, mommy -- THOSE crayons!" Oh, I giggled about that for DAYS!!!

That is too cute!!! I love the little things that our kids say, so naive and innoncent! I don't know what I'll ever do without that! Hmmm...makes me sad to even think about it.
