sweet parker

We've been having really great conversations with Parker lately. The way kids learn and absorb the world is mind-blowing sometimes. Kids are so much smarter than we give them credit! But a couple of really cute conversations stand out from the last week or so...

Me driving and a bit distracted, Parker in the back set trying on a pretend wedding ring.

P: Mom, when can I get married?
ME: Well, hmmm....when you are older and find a girl and you fall in love.
P: Well, I'm in love with you, mama. I'll marry you.
ME: I love you too, babe, but Daddy already married me and I can only be married to one person.
P: oh. {silence, thinking}
P: Mom? Is Miss Tara married? I think I'm in love with her.
*Tara is one of our best friends...and she's almost 30:) At least he has good taste!

Another converation...I was responding to emails in the office and Parker was working on some art projects. I was slightly distracted...again!

P: Mom, how can I get to heaven with God?
ME: ummmmmm.....(totally taken off guard) hmmmmm....well, someday you can pray and ask God to be your very best friend and for Jesus to come into you heart.
P: Oh.
ME: When you are ready, let me know and we can pray about that...
P: Someday?! I wanna do it now! Now, what do I say to God?

I tell him and I see him go to the corner and thanks God for his life and his house..."and please be my friend and come into my tummy...um, I mean my hearts. Dear God, Thank you...aMEN!"

Oh that sweet, sweet boy! You can't post things like this or I'm just going to quit my job and move home! :)

Love you!

oh wait...there's more? I didn't see the whole post on Facebook.

Amy, this is so sweet!

Kelsey, I think that's the point. =)

Amy, what a sweet little boy you have there. =) Right now, Devyn is still at the point where she's living with us for forever. I'm more than happy with that. And I can't wait for Hudson to say he wants to marry me. (How is a mama supposed to not get teary during that moment?!)

I'm praying fervently that this is the year Devyn becomes a Christian. I think she can get it, really get it, and I'm praying for the right opportunity.

I love you!!

Oh when did that little baby become such a grown up boy! What a sweet moment, so simple, just like our God.
Love you guys!

That little guy (the little celebrity - as Jonathan calls him) is so precious! What great moments lie ahead in motherhood. I can't wait to have conversations like that:)!

CPT Mom said...

That is precious.
My daughter also asked Jesus into her tummy...I mean heart.
That must be a common error in the preschool crowd.
