Sometimes I get a kick out of my 3 year old (but only sometimes).
We were having Family Home Evening on Monday and we were naming off people who love my son. Then I said, "but there are two people who love you more than anyone. They are Heavenly Father and..." I paused so he could fill in the blank. He answered, very matter-of fact, "Buzz Lightyear." Oy vey.
Last weekend my mom, my kids, and I went out to lunch. Our waiter had shoulder length, curly hair, and a pretty bushy beard. After he took our order and walked away my son stated, "he's a lion." Offensive? Yes. Funny? Yes.
We have a neighbor who is an actor in LDS films so sometimes he grows his hair out and has facial hair. This past winter my son was convinced he was Jesus and would say "hi Jesus" as we walked past him in church. One day my son was determined to get my neighbor's attention so he could ask him a question. "Jesus, Jesus," he said, "where's Santa Claus?" Really? That's the question he would ask if he met Jesus? Not one of my proudest mothering moments.
And while we're on the topic of funny things kids say let me share my favorite Primary conversation. Bear with me if you've already heard it.
I was teaching a lesson on Heaven to 5 year olds...
Boy #1: I wish I could live with Jesus in Heaven.
Boy #2: Not me! I wish I lived in California.
Girl #1: Me too. That's where Justin Bieber lives.
Funny people, those kids.
