Here are some recent quotes that I’ve enjoyed from our third born.
Out of the blue Grace asked, “Mom, who borned you?” Now that’s a great question, but I can’t remember my two older girls ever pondering the thought.
Then a little while later she asked, “Are we all going to raise from the dead?” My first answer was to say no, because I thought she was asking if we would all be raised from the dead like Jesus was. Jason however said yes and explained that the dead in Christ will all rise. I’m not sure how much of this she understood…
A few days later she said to no one in particular, “Little Jason wasn’t the last one borned. The baby that died was the last one borned.” She brings up our little one in heaven more than the rest of us. It always takes me a little bit by surprise and I wish I could get into her little head to see what she’s feeling.
And my favorite: Jason told her to do something and she responded, “Okay Daddy Paddy!” That one had me rolling. I don’t think she was being disrespectful at all. She’s just funny! I’m not sure he would appreciate me referring to him that way though…Daddy Paddy…Haaaaa!

I love the way kids’ minds work… We don’t understand half of what they say, but it sure is funny most of the time!
She is just precious! Her mind seems to work overtime.
I am new to your blog and just wanted to say I have really enjoyed reading it and laughing today

Those are precious 🙂
Grace is a hoot. I love your stories about her. 🙂
Such a deep thinker for a little girl. She seems very intelligent as all of your kids do. It is a tribute to how they are raised!
Kids always tell it like it is 🙂 So sweet!

Precious is the right word!!!
Kids can be so funny! I used to write down the things my kids said, but somewhere along the way I got out of that habit.
I think it’s really sweet the way your kids, Grace in particular, don’t ever forget their other sibling… the one they’ll meet one day in heaven! I wonder if they’ll still talk about him/her years down the road.
So sweet! She is a smart one. It’s amazing the things kids say. I need to write down more of my own kid quotes.

Paddy Daddy is so cute….and catchy! My hubby’s nickname from his grown daughters is PapaDawg…which I LOVE. His grandkids simply call him “Papa”. I use “PapaDawg” as often as I can, just ’cause I like it!
