It is always amazing to me to hear what my children have to say, to hear their thoughts about the world, their interpretations of things. It's incredible, the ideas they have. They are often right on the mark - very perceptive little creatures, they are. They are also very candid, sweet and more often than not, very funny.
Over the holidays, we watched the Peanuts Christmas movies quite a bit, so the nativity story has been a frequent topic of conversation. Today, while driving in the car, the conversation went like this:
3-year-old: Mommy, angels don't really say, "Hark!"
Me: Really? What would an angel say, then?
3-year-old: They say, "Hi, I'm an angel. This baby is coming alive."
