Julia and I were reading her Bible for bedtime last night. She got a new Bible , and so we decided since we were "upgrading" from the story books to her first real "big" Bible, we'd start at the beginning... so creation was covered the first night. She knew a lot already so we were having fun "filling in the blanks" as I would read.
We got to day four...
"God made two great lights. He made the larger light to rule over the day. He made the smaller light to rule over the night. He also made the stars."
Me : "Julia, what was the bigger light God made to rule over the day?"
Julia: "The Sun!"
Me: Good! And what was the smaller light God made to rule over the night?"
Julia: "The light switch?"
Tonight she couldn't go to sleep. So after a few futile attempts to get out of bed, she brings me this conversation...:
"Mom, my finger feels funny."
"It feels like there's blood in it."
Me: "Well, Jules, there is blood in it but that's a good thing."
"Maybe it feels that way because of the ketchup I'm eating."
(Those of you with 5 year olds know you can't laugh in their face.) So I swallow my laugh and suggest that maybe she should quit eating ketchup.
"No!! I love ketchup!"
Julia : "But if it happens again in the morning, I'll stop eating ketchup."
I don't know what we'll do if she decides to do that. It's her only daily vegetable serving....
