chit chat

libby:  daddy, do grandmas just go on forever?
daddy:  what do you mean?
libby:  well, i was just thinking, i have two grandmas, and mommy has grandmas, and grandmas have grandmas, and it just seems like grandmas go on forever.
daddy:  yep, all the way back to adam and eve!

xander:  how did i come out of your belly?
mommy:  stammering something about God's timing, xander all grown and formed and ready
xander:  no, but i mean, HOW did i get out of your belly??
mommy:  diverts with lots of details about going to the hospital, walking around, waiting until it was time, doctor helping, etc. 
xander:  appeased. 
mommy:  relieved.  changing subject.

days later...
xander:  how did God give you to me?
mommy:  well, when God decided it was time, he blessed us by putting you in my belly.
xander:  no, but i mean, HOW did God put me IN your belly?
mommy:  wellllllllll, it was something very special with mommy and daddy and a blessing from God, where you were tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny tiny and he formed you in my belly and you grew and grew and grew until it was time for you to be born.
xander:  appeased.
mommy:  relieved.  

i love this stage of life.  despite my struggling and floundering around like a clueless fool.  :)  i do hope to grow to eventually do less of that.
