The Backseat Strikes Again

On our way home from swimming lessons this morning, I overheard this interesting conversation, taking place in the back seat. My ears perked up, when I heard Princess#1, say to Princess #2, that "Daddy isn't your real Daddy."

Princess #2 agrees and says," That's right, God is our Father."

I interject, "Daddy is your real Dad." . . .

Then Princess #1 quickly says, "Yah, but God is our different father."

Princess #2 says, "He's our sky father."

I say, "Our Heavenly Father."

Princess #1 (in very patronizing tone, if she knew how to use the word "duh", she would have!), "Mama, heaven means sky."

Sometimes it's just better to let them have their own terminology!

what a sweet conversation. don't you love it when the kids talk about spiritual things? it's very enlightening. :) when m was three i overheard a phonecall conversation she was having with God. She was asking about her grandpa in heaven and telling God how happy Grandpa would be when Grandma came to live with them in heaven. they were on the phone (okay, it was the fisher-price phone, but the conversation was real!)together for a good 5 or 10 minutes.
