Out of the mouth of babes.....they usually make us smile and these sure did.
From Blake: Looking at our dining room table overflowing with cards, flowers and candy in astonishment...."We sure did get some nice things this last week!"
From Kaia: "Mommy, maybe this baby was growing with another disability and even though Heavenly Father knew you and daddy would be ok with that, He decided that he didn't want you to have that burden again."
And the one that made me laugh out loud and my sweet sister knew I would love it.....
From my 8 year old nephew Jack to my sister Jill: "Mommy, it is so sad that Auntie April's baby was cancelled."
'Cancelled'.....I said....like postponed. That is exactly what happened. I love when kids come up with their own interpretation. It reminds me of a story I need to share sometime about Kaia learning about the birds and the bees and referring to sex as "colliding"!
And from an adult male friend, who is a pharmacist and I value his opinion immensely, who had me rolling in laughter Friday evening.....
Him: "I am so glad you are choosing to have a D&C. How can you go wrong with something that has the same name as scripture? Maybe you could ask for a Pearl of Great Price while they are at it?"
Me: "If the Pearl of Great Price is a hernia repair....I'll totally go for it!" Why didn't you speak up when I asked for advice?"
Him: "Well since I don't have a cervix or uterus I figured I probably didn't have a right to chime in!"
