Me: No, it's tea. Herbal tea.
David: Mmm, I love purple tea. Can I have some purple tea too Momma?
Will: Mom, I have to go to the bafroom.
Me: Okay Will, then go to the bathroom.
Will: Mom, you carry me!!
Me: No Will, you can walk.
Will: No, CARRY ME!
Me: Hmm- are you trying to be difficult?
Will: (looking very confused) No...I'm PERFECT.
We were talking about the Holy Ghost during family scripture study...
Will: Huh? The Holy Ghost? I will kill him with my sword.
Me: No, no Will. The Holy Ghost is a good ghost. He's our friend that always stays with us. He helps us to know right from wrong and helps keep us safe.
Later on when they were playing Good guys vs. Bad guys...
Will: (speaking to Nora who was "the bad guy") I will get you bad guy and I have the Holy Ghost. He will help me kill you.
Hmm...thinking we need a few more lessons on that one. The whole "ghost" part of it really has him confused.
Tess: Mom, I want a dog! Why can't we have a dog?
Nora: I want a titty-tat (kitty cat).
Will: I want a lizard.
David: I want a talking parrot.
Me: Well, what about a goldfish? Goldfish are really cool.
(Lots of blank, unconvinced stares.)
