Happy Valentines Day! This holiday personally makes me gag, but hey, to each their own. For my monkeys sake, I will embrace it and share with them chocolate and valentines. Whatever.
But onto exciting news...
I'm going to start a new post night for me...Monkeyisms Mondays!
so for tonight, the star of the show is Maddie!
Maddiesm of the night...
Everynight I lay with Maddie in her bed right before she falls asleep. I usually ask her to tell me something nice that she did for someone that day, or something that made her happy. Tonight our conversation was a tad bit different...and never ceases to amaze me. It went something like this...
Me: "Mad, let's pray tonight."
Mad: "Um...bless us oh Lord, for these" she stated, rehearsing our dinner prayer.
Me: "No, Mad, let's pray like this tonight, thank you for for our family. Thank you for keeping us safe and together. Thank you so much for loving us..."
Mad: "Mom, who are we praying to?"
Me: "Well, God, Maddie."
Mad: "who's God?"
Me: "Well, he's the creator of us. Of Heaven and Earth."
Mad: "How did he make us?"
Me: "Well, he made a man named Adam, and took a rib from him, mixed it with mud and made Eve." (I'm not going to pretend that I'm super religious, because I'm not. But I do believe in God and I do want my children to believe in God. This is how I remember the story from CCD years ago, but it may be totally different)
Mad: "wait a minute...(deep in thought) you mean I'm made of mud?" so serious..."and is that why my poop is brown??"
I seriously love this chic and how much she makes me laugh. The small things she does. It's absolutly priceless.
