‘O’ is for Obey

Oct. 18, 2011

Just overheard Maggie (4) singing an interesting variation on the song 'O is for Obey' from BSF: "O is for obey, O is for obey, do whatever you want to do, O is for obey." (To the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”)

Good Point

Millie (5): But Jesus wasn’t married. Why didn’t He get married?
Mom: That’s a good question. Why do you think He didn’t get married.
Xander (7): Probably because He was 100% God and 100% Man.
Mom: Good Point.

Mom: Millie, What are the two most important things you believe?
Millie (5) : I believe that I was snuggling with Caddy as soon as they gave her to me. And I believe that God is.

Tuck In

Xander (7) reaches up from his bed with a big smile to hug and kiss me goodnight: “You kiss me on the chin and I kiss you on the nose. It’s calculated.”

Conversations with Max

Max (12), bemoaning the introduction of yoga to his PE class: “You’re supposed to empty your mind and focus on the movements. But I’ve always been a person of the brain, not the body.”

Xander, Xander Space Commander

Mom: Xander, you really love thinking about science, don’t you?
Xander (7): Yes. Hey, Mom: Why do you think God made the universe to be always expanding? I think maybe it was to show us that we can’t get to heaven on our own.

Conversations with Maggie (10):

Me: Maggie, I’m considering letting you take an acting class this semester. Is that something you think you would enjoy?

Maggie: Yes, but what I really need is an agent.

Millie (5): Most times, boys are tougher than girls.
Mom: Well, sometimes girls are really tough.
Xander(7): Yeah, but most times ladies are more upset than men.
