Of Interest (to some)

I woke up at around 4:30 this morning realizing there was a third person in our bed. Matt awoke and asked Eleanor, "Why are you in our bed?" She promptly answered, "I guess I'll go back to my bed." She hopped down and went right back to her bed and back to sleep.

If you ask Eleanor who should be president, she will often answer, "Barack Obama AND John McCain." Really, why choose?

On a recent Sunday as we were driving home from church we were asking Eleanor what she learned about in Sunday School. They had been talking about how God created light and made days. Eleanor was chattering away about it. Then she paused and said, "But Jesus makes the light in the bathroom." (We have a Jesus nightlight in the bathroom.)

Eleanor saw our neighbor's garden gnome and got all excited: "Look! Look! It's JESUS!" I think it was the beard.

Eleanor is learning all kinds of new words. Some of my favorites are "moderation," "mysterious," and "impossible." Example of usage:
Me: Eleanor, why did you pee on the floor?
E: I don't know. It's mysterious.

Would you ask her why Silas might be waking up so early these days? She seems to know a lot...

Kids are so much fun at her age. I'm amazed at their learning capacity! She's a pretty awesome little girl.

What, no pic of your Jesus nightlight?

The other day we met a new friend at the park and she told me, "I want a beard!"

Love this post. It is so fun when they start learning the bigger words.
