Driving down the street last week, Evan and I had this little conversation …
4year old: It’s hot outside. You know when it’s hot sometimes a storm comes?
Me: That’s right. We might actually have a storm tonight.
4year old: Yep. And sometimes storms brings lightning.
Me: That’s right. And when it starts to do that, we have to go inside.
4year old: But God is always with us & he will protect us.
Me: That’s right Evan God IS always with us. But it’s still good to go inside when the lightning comes.
4year old – But I’m not afraid of the lightning.
Me: And why not?
** Now at this point, I was fully expecting the conversation to begin it’s usual circle … knowing full & well that Evan would once again say “because God is always with us” … but it didn’t exactly go that way …
4year old: Because I’m a boy.
4year old: But you’re a girl & Megan is a girl and girls are afraid of lightning.
Me: We are?
4year old: Yes, because girls always scream!
