Thoughts of a 5 year old
We were driving home the other night after dinner with some friends. Ethan was staring out the window, apparently in deep thought. Let me clarify that the vehicle was NOT at all peaceful as Luke and Kate were both quite enthused with songs and strange noises. You know, one of those rides where you can almost feel the van swaying from all the noise and flailing. Anyway, Ethan pipes up with these questions that made Ben and I look at each other with WIDE eyes! Our family often talks about when the kids are all grown up and have their own kids. Ethan has obviously thought about his "grown up" life quite a bit as he asked these questions with deep concern.
"Daddy, when I am big, HOW WILL I FIND MY HOUSE!?"
"Daddy, when I am big, HOW WILL I BUY THINGS!?"
and the one that brought a tear to my eye:
"Daddy, when I am big, HOW WILL I FIND A WIFE THAT KNOWS ABOUT GOD!?"
I wanted to freeze him in time and never let him grow up! It just melted my heart!
That's it...NO MORE GROWING!!
