Mommy's Special...but she's not THAT special.

So...it all started with this song...

I am special
I am special

Don't you see?
Don't you see?

Someone very special.
Someone very special.

Because God made me.
God made me.


Gage: "Well, God didn't make ME."
Mommy: "Yes he did."
Gage: "NO! You made me in your tummy!"
Mommy: "Well..." {think fast Mom! How do you explain all this to your 3 year old!?}
Gage: "Are YOU GOD?"
Mommy: "Well, no..."

And then we proceeded to have a conversation about how yes, I did grow Gage in my tummy, but only after we wished, hoped, and prayed for a baby. And God gave Gage to us as a blessing.

I don't know how much he understood or retained....but the conversation had NOTHING to do with sex {thank goodness!} and ended with Gage saying "YOU'RE NOT GOD!"

...and there you have it, folks.

Ha! I love this! What a smart boy Gage is!

There have been days when I've insisted to my boys that I am, indeed, God. Usually it's because I'm at my whit's end about something and it is just time they followed through with what I've asked. I'm pretty sure they're not actually buying my claim, and I'm pretty sure it's going to get me in trouble down the line if I don't stop, but when it works, it works!

Huh, that's funny... I had a very similar conversation with my 3 year old today about where he came from.

It was mostly about "how did I get out"... thinking fast, I said "a doctor took you out" and he goes "but from where...???"

... I changed the subject!
