I love my new work schedule. It permits me to relax and enjoy Monday night sleepovers. It allows me to be home when our grandson wakes up in the morning and gets ready for preschool. Preschool is close enough to walk back and forth.
This afternoon we walked home from preschool, enjoying the warm sunshine. Tate turned the corner into the park and says "Wait Drahma, I have a question for you." I stopped and looked at his sweet, little face, waiting for his question. "Who is God?" I took a deep breath and thought how that wasn't what I was expecting, but answered "God is someone special who looks out over everyone from heaven. He helps us to be happy, reminds us to be thankful, hugs us when we are sad and keeps us healthy and loved."
He seemed satisfied with the answer for all of 20 seconds. He looked back up at me and said "Who is Jesus?" I said "Jesus is God's son. He was a teacher and taught people about God and love."
Tate then responded, "Oh so Jesus is a teacher like Tio?"
Oh Sheez... Please don't tell Tio his nephew compared him to Jesus!
