Work it out

Overheard in my backyard this morning:
Xander: Millie, Can Ladd PLEASE be an adopted alien?!?
Millie: No, Xander. “Ladd” means “A small man.” He can’t be an alien.
Xander: Ok, we will have to do rock, paper, scissors to decide.

Free Wheelin’

At our breakfast table this morning, Millie (4) suddenly announced: “You know the problem with sin? God gave people free wheels. I don’t understand that.”

The Potty Train

Mom: Let’s stop by the bathroom first. Look, that little friend is probably stopping here, too.
Millie: She is pretty little. I don’t think she is on the potty train yet.

Xander and the Bible

Xander: Mom, What happens in the first five chapters of Isaiah?
Mom: In the year King Uziah died, The prophet Isaiah saw a vision of God in Heaven.
Xander: That was in Isaiah 6. I want to know what happened in chapters 1-5.

Conversations with Xander

Xander (holding folded paper and pen, ready to make a new book): Mom, I’m going to write my own Bible. 

Me: I love it when you write books. But you know that God’s true Word is the only real Bible, so you can’t really write your own Bible. 

Xander: Ok. I’ll just write my own Septuagint.

Millie (4): I'm a helper. When I see someone who needs help, I help them. That's the special gift God gave me. I'm a helper.

Max: Xander, Can I put your head underwater for just a second? It will feel like you are an ocean explorer!

Xander: No! It will feel like bath-tizing!
