Wordy Wednesday

Tonight at bedtime we had the following conversation:

Jack:  Mama?  Whose belly did Henry and David come out of?
Me:  My belly.
Jack:  And whose belly did I come out of?
Me:  My belly.
Jack:  And whose belly did Katie Roof come out of?
Me:  Her first mama.
David:  Do you think that her first mama and dada were sad that they couldn't take care of her?
Me:  I do.  And I think that they hoped that someone else could take care of her for them.
David:  Like us?
Me:  Yes.  I think they wanted someone to love her and take care of her forever.
Henry:  In a family.  That's what a family does.  
Me:  That's exactly right buddy.
David:  Do you think it's weird that I can love her like she grew in your belly even when she didn't?  Because I do.
Me:  No, I don't think that's weird at all.
Henry:  DAVID!  That's because she's our family.  That's what a family does - love each other.

My work here might be done.


  1. This literally took my breath away...as I was reading it I could tell I wasn't even breathing. Precious, precious!

  2. Oh. My. Goodness.
    Lucky little Katie Roof! ;)

  3. Out of the mouths of babes...She is going to be spoiled by those boys.

  4. Priceless!! To teach them the love of a family and to teach them to love the Lord, that is what we are here for as parents!!

  5. Oh my word. So, so precious. :)

  6. Every time I read your blog I cry, lately! Tears of joy, of course! Your boys are so sweet. <3
