1. While sitting on the futon the other day, Brooke blurted out, “There are a lot of gods.” I knew there had to be some reason this statement poured forth from her mouth, so I asked, “Brooke, there is only one God, why did you say that there is a whole bunch???” She intelligently replied, “Mom (in her don’t you know better tone), God is everywhere and one God cannot be everywhere, so there must be a lot of gods.” It made sense to her. I explained that God can do anything, including being everywhere, but she is sticking with her story.
2. While we were out driving (destination forgotten), we passed Home Depot. Brooke said, “Home Depot. That is where daddy used to work.” That is a true statement, so neither of us said anything to contradict her. Her thought, however, was not done. “….until he got fired!” I had to laugh because it just struck me as funny.
3. Brooke went with me to drop the boys off at school this morning. She is always sad to see them go, so there are a lot of hugs and kisses given away. This morning, one of Wesley’s friends, Cody, was being dropped off at the same time, so he walked by our car and Brooke said, “Hi, Cody!” He called back, “Hello, Brooke!” After he passed, Brooke said, “He thinks I am cute.” Now, I believe she is cute and daddy tells her all the time that she is cute, but this is a little much. As we pulled out, she started telling me how cute she thought she was. I told her that other people can tell her she is cute, but she should not talk about herself like that. I told her to tell someone else something nice. She thought for a short moment and said, “Mom, you are cute.” Thanks, Brooke, I thought to myself, as I pulled out of school still in my pajamas J. Then she blew it all by adding, “You are a twin with me. We are both too cute!”
