Math Application

Helping to read a recipe:

"Eleven twoths - or is that seconds? - teaspoons of baking powder..."

Fractions:  check!

Thinking Outside of the Box

We're having an interesting discussion about how Dum Dums lollipops get to the dollar store.

C:  Momma, do babies come to the house in boxes, or does someone bring them to your house?

Me:  Oh, dear.

Old-Fashioned Footwear

We are somewhere in the middle of the story in the book of John where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.

C:  Momma, what did Lazarus look like?
Me:  Nobody knows.  He probably looked like an ordinary guy.
C:  Did he look like Daddy?
Me:  Well, probably not.  He probably had dark hair...
C:  And a nice soft beard?
Me:  Yes, a beard.  And his skin was a little darker than Daddy's.
C:  And he probably had socks on!

Not a Rose by Any Name

Me:  I'm going to take a quick shower.
C (with nose plugged):  I sure hope you don't stink any more when you come out!

Yeah.  That's kinda the point, kid!
