We were all seated around the table eating lunch. (So many of our great conversations happen over meals!) I had gotten word that Joy told her VBS teacher, “My mom is twenty-eight!” I got a kick out of that, but I was really surprised she didn’t know my age.
So over lunch I asked her if she knew how old I am. She repeated the same number that she told her teacher. Finally, the truth came out with Faith, “You’re thirty-nine,” she said simply and that was the end of that, or so I thought.
Little Jason asked, “Thirty big nine?” I couldn’t believe he threw the word “big” in there. I asked him to repeat it several times to make sure. Finally he said, “You a big number Mommy.” There’s no fooling him!
I am so thankful for these kids that bring such joy into my life!
