Tot Theology

Ellie: I got Jesus in my heart.

Me: Do you?

E: We talked to Jesus at Gam and PawPaw's house.

Me: We talk to him here too.

E: Did we leave him there?

Me: [realizing she's talking about our empty tomb figure] No, we brought those back with us. We talked about how He died and rose there.

E: He's dead?!

Me: But He rose again.

E: Where is He?

Me: In heaven.

E: Can I go see Him?

Me: Someday.

E: Can you drive me there?

Me: [thinking, 'I sure hope not!'] No, honey.

E: So we walk there.

Me:  No, you have to wait until God calls you to heaven.

E: But where is He?

Me: He's everywhere.

E: [looking suspiciously from side to side] Where?

Oh Dear

Ellie (to Kate): You're a pot head.

Me: Let's not say that.

Which leads into a whole discussion of weed, pot, Mary Jane...  The legal, the illegal, the medicinal, the questionable, and how it affects brain chemistry.  We told them that some people smoke it and some people even bake it into brownies.

Gabby: What?!  Illegal brownies!

Because brownies is where we were going with that...
