I have to say that I am completely amazed by the things my four year old comes up with in his cute little head. Today was not the first time he surprised me with what he said, but it certainly was up there with the best. He had some food leftover from dinner the other night that he had been avoiding at all cost. In my attempt to teach him not to waste anything I wanted him to finish eating it. One of my more clever ideas was to put it in a tortilla and serve it to him as a taco. This halfway worked until he discovered it tasted about the same as without the tortilla. Then I got desperate. I lied. Now I'm not proud of it, but honestly I was out of ideas. While he wasn't looking I quickly folded the tortilla back up. And this is the conversation that took place...
Him "Mommy, what are you doing?"
Me "Putting magic in your taco, and if you open it, the magic will disappear."
Him "No it won't"
Me "yes it will"
Him "No it won't, do you know why?"
Him "Because there is no such thing as magic. Remember, God made me smart and so I am smart."
Me *mouth hanging opening* haha
I have to say that I am blessed for Ayden to be surrounded by such Godly examples everywhere he is. It also brought this verse to mind. Children are examples of humble faith in Jesus.
Matthew 18: 2-6
And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
