I’m writing in my journal.  My five year old sister is sitting next to me, scribbling in her Hello Kitty notebook.

Julia: “This is my dream book.  Well, I guess it’s not.  I guess it’s just my journal.”

Me: “Well, I write my dreams in my journal sometimes.  What are your dreams?”

Julia: “I don’t know.  What are your dreams?”

Me: “Well, I want to be a Mommy someday.”

Julia: “Oh, that will definitely come true.”

Me: “I don’t know.  Maybe I won’t ever marry, and then I won’t be a Mommy, either!”

Julia: “Well, I’m sure God will find some godly men for you. Hey Megs!  I can spell ‘WHATEVER’!”

And in relaying said conversation to my sister….

Katie: “Oh that child.  Her faith is to be applauded, her way of living in the present is to be celebrated, and her comments are priceless.”

Indeed.  (She also told me the other day that her pretend pet doesn’t bark because “He’s kind of dumb.”)

I love my sisters.  Though the little one is such a genius that Katie and I are seriously considering moving to another country so people don’t know we’re related and expect us to be geniuses, too.  (She’s been teaching us all about microbes lately.  Thank you, Magic School Bus.  She’s also been writing her own poems and corrects me on my geography.  Did I mention she’s five?)

    In re-reading this, I’m struck by the fact that she said God would provide some godly “men” for you . . . perhaps we need to instruct her on the wisdom of one spouse?

      I was thinking this. Hopefully, she neither thinks polygamy is acceptable or the first one will die. Or maybe she just meant that I could have my pick? 😛 But it amuses me to no end. Especially the random – “I can spell WHATEVER!”
