I have mentioned before how literal Lula Mae is, and I just want to give you a little snap shot of what I mean.
On our trip together we stopped in to see Esther and Scott. Scott was leaving for work and said he had to hit the road:
Why would you hit the road Scott?
I'm sure in her mind she wanted to know what the road did to Scott to deserve to be hit.
We worked on a some rhyming and spelling this past week at school:
Mommy, what rhymes with monkey. Hey, donkey looks like monkey! Mommy, you have been saying donkey wrong. It looks like monkey so they have to rhyme.
I know one little girl who is NOT going to enjoy learning the rules to the english language!
Lula Mae has been taught since birth that we invite Jesus to live in our hearts and today she asked me:
Mommy, does Jesus wiggle around in there when I dance? Does it make him dizzy and fall down?
A few moments later:
When I get a boo boo on my toe does he swim down to make it better? How does he get to my toe to heal it if he is in my heart? Or on my head?
Life with a literal child is quite interesting, to say the least.
