As you know, I'm deeply involved with Vacation Bible School at church this year. There are three activities that the three teams rotate through each night: Bible Story, Games & Crafts.
Last night, when Kiddo was sitting in the Bible story getting "learned", up comes this really big storm; thunder, lightning, rain - the works. One great big clap of thunder sounded and without skipping a beat Kiddo says, "Holy Crap!" right in the middle of his Bible lesson! (I was not there to witness this, but I got it from several very reliable sources!)
We don't talk like that round him, so I'd really love to know where he picked it up, and why he thought it was appropriate to come out with that DURING A BIBLE LESSON no less...?
Yesterday before VBS, he looked at me as I was helping him get his belt on and he said very seriously, "You need to lose some weight, Mom!" He was grinning like it was something funny and good that he'd just said to me. I didn't react, but I said, "[Kiddo], that was very rude. I hope you realize you really shouldn't say things like that to people, right? You might hurt their feelings like you just hurt mine."
He immediately burst into tears and said, "I'm sorry, Mom. But it's true, isn't it?"
Well yes, it is true - I do need to lose some weight - but I still don't want to hear about it from my five year old!
