A Little Comic Relief

My son, glancing at the Christmas tree: "Mama, how do you make days go by quicker so they happen really, really fast? What do you have to do?"

Me: "Well, I think you fill them up and do lots of things and then they go by quickly."

My son, a huge look of relief on his face and with a big sigh: "Oh good. Sissy said it was by obedience."

{If you haven't read this or this about this Christmas season they are some of my favourites out there right now. Also we just read this book as a family and we all loved it. She's such a beautiful writer. }

Giggling over here. I love your daughter. Pure and simple.

It must be an oldest child thing....because I totally get what she said to her little brother!
