So I last posted in August. I think it was 3 months ago, yesterday. I'm a little behind.
Rather than catch the blog up on everything that's happened this fall, I just want to note a few conversations.
While getting ready for school this morning ...
Evan: What are you, Corrie?
Corrie: I'm a princess. What are you?
Evan: I'm a Transformer. What is your name?
Corrie: Princess Corrie. What is your name?
Corrie: I love you.
Evan: I love you, too.
Corrie: I'm a fairy princess. Do you want to be a princess?
Corrie: OK. I will zap you. Zap! Do you want a wand?
Corrie: Zap! Now you have a wand.
Me: (sings Bibbity Bobbity Boo and finish while tapping Corrie on the nose)
Corrie: (pause) Am I a coach?
Me: Oh, um, sure.
Corrie: (bursts into tears) I don't want to be a coach! I want to be a fairy princess!
Me: I'm so sorry. Zap!
Corrie: (no more tears) I am a fairy princess.
At prayer time ...
Evan: Dear Lord, you are the God of Gods, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Emperor of Emperors, President of Presidents.
Can I just say that I enjoy these kids? They delight me.
