The Logic of My Children

The other day we were in the car and the girls were talking to each other as usual. I Don't always listen to what they are saying, but I happened to tune in just as Gabbie said something about mommy's work. (We had just passed the building where Daddy works.) The rest of the conversation went like this:

Natalie to Gabbie: "No honey, Mommy can't work, she doesn't have any work clothes!"

Me: "Mommy still works, what is my job?"

Natalie: "No you don't!"

Me: "Yes, I do. My job is to stay at home with you and Gabbie so I can take care of you. Who would take care of you if Mommy wasn't there?"

Gabbie: "GOD!"

Now I get to explain that God does take care of them, but they still need Mommy for other things. God can do all things...but I have yet to see Him make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

:D Loved this.
Peanut butter sandwiches, wiping in the bathroom (something it seems like I do too much of lately), pouring milk.... Mommys are God's hands, I guess.

I guess so! :o) So I guess as long as I never get any work clothes, I will never have to go to work. :o)
