Why? What You Want and Are Pirates Extinct?


Isha. Look at his hands. This is what he does
when asking, "Why?"

If you are a parent, you have no doubt been through that stage where your child asks "why?".
Isha is at that stage right now. He has a "why" for everything!!!

"Don't throw your milk!" (me)
"Why?" (Isha)

"Momma's going to take your picture!" (me)
"Why?" (Isha)

But I almost fell over the other morning when his daddy called him to get his shoes on and Isha said, "What you want?"

Andan, being five, has more complex and thought provoking questions, like:
"Are pirates extinct?"
No Andan. Sadly, they aren't.

And a conversation Andan and I had a while back:
"Mom, why do old people die?"
"Well...to make room for the new babies (Oh gosh, couldn't I have come up with something better...like the truth!)." I said.
"Is the earth crowded?"
" Yes, it seems to be getting that way (I'm digging my own hole here)." I said.
" Why don't we just move all the old people to Mars? Nobody is living there!"
Good answer son!


Sisters, INK
By Rebeca Seitz
I love to read. Sometimes life can get so busy that it leaves no time. And sometimes life is busy, I have time but I don't want to put too much thought into it. In other words, I want an easy read. Not something that has to have an action plan to go along with it (for instance The Five Love Languages or Love and Respect). Sisters Ink is a great easy read. I discovered this series just by browsing my local library. I'm surprised I haven't heard of it from my fellow christian scrap pals. Sisters Ink is a story of four adopted sisters who are all at different stages in their life. Yet their faith, scrapping and love for each other brings them together. The book has a light mood even though the characters go through some difficult life circumstances including the loss of their mother to cancer, infertility issues and tough career choices. I love how this fictional book combines so many things that are important to me in my life. Faith, family and scrapping!
Oh...and I am also reading those books that require a plan of action....more on that later.
