where and who

In the car yesterday:

Jude: Mom? Where are we going again?

Me: We're going to Hannah & Elijah's house.

Jude: Oh. Right. *pause* Mom? Sometimes I don't know where we're going.

Oh my heart.

Then later at Jen & Graham's Jude came in and was looking for someone:

Jude: Mom? I can't find the tall one?

Me: *somewhat distracted and then realizing what he's saying* What? Who's the tall one?

Jude: Yeah. Oh hi! *turns to find Hannah*

Me: *laughing* Oh, Jude. That's Hannah! She's not "the tall one", she's Hannah!

Too funny.

bad guys

Jude went up to {Uncle} James and asked him which light saber he wanted:
Jude: Do you want green or yellow?
James: Um, yellow.
Jude: Okay so I'm green and I'm the good guy and you're yellow and you're the bad guy.
James: Aw, I don't want to be the bad guy!
Jude: Well then you shouldn't have picked the yellow light saber!

conversations like these happen every 8.3 minutes

Jude to me for the millionth time in the 5 minutes:

MOM? If I was this big *stretching his arms out to the widest they can go* I could lift this whole house, right?

Noah: Only God could lift this house.

Me: Well, there are machines that can lift houses.

Noah: Really, Mom? Aren't machines imaginary?

Me: No. Machines are real.

Noah: Oh.

awkward questions

On the weekend we had my sister and brother in law over and Jude turned to his uncle at one point and said,

Uncle Sam? How big is YOUR penis?

Oh Jude. Good thing your uncle found this incredibly hilarious instead of incredibly impertinent.

Jesus and car rides

Yesterday we were in the car and Jude asked:

Mom? Is God inside us?

I thought for a second and then said,

If you ask Jesus to come into your heart and forgive your sins, then yes. God does live inside you.

Jude said,

Yes. Jesus, I want to ask you to come into my heart.

Oh bless my soul, right there in the car he just asked Jesus into his heart.
