A Second Helping of Danae-isms

We are having a great week so far! Thank God! Only two accidents total, and yes, we actually do go out without a diaper on and not stay at home all day. :o) I'm praying it continues from here!

I thought I'd do another installment of recent Danae-isms for you. (Little Brother James, I know you especially like these, since you don't get to see the Little Peanut much.) So, here you go:

1) (Driving in the car, I hear sudden screaming and crying from the back seat.)
me: Danae, what's wrong???
Danae: My belly! Hurts! HUUUURTS!!
me: We are almost at the store, and then I can get you out of your car seat.
(Danae continues to scream.)
me: Should Mommy pray to Jesus to make you feel better?
Danae: YES!
(I say a short prayer. The screaming stops. A few moments later...)
Danae: Mommy! I'm all better! Jesus saved me!!!)

2) (Danae and I were running from the front door to the kitchen and back again, pretending to race each time.)
Danae: Mommy, go again!
me: Danae, Mommy needs a little break. I'm pooped!
Danae: Mommy, then you need to go to the potty.

3) (After we told Danae about the baby in my belly.)
Danae: Can I see it?
Daddy: has to grow really big and then come out of Mommy's belly.
Danae (cupping her hands around her mouth, and then leaning toward the belly): COME OUT, BABY!

I'm sure there will be more to come from our quirky girl! :o)

Hello Bess,
What sweet stories! I treasure the moments when my children begin to understand Biblical truths and express their love for Jesus!

I would like to introduce myself. I am a new WAHM and am excited to begin networking with moms and grandmothers who are juggling the many roles they have in life just as I am. I had a 15 year career as an accountant for a publicly traded company and I missed out on so many of the precious moments in the lives of my boys. In August of ’07 I finally took the step of faith and left my full-time employment so that I could have the time, energy, and flexibility to focus on the needs of my tween (age 12) and 1st grader (age 6).
I have built a website which focuses on the essentials of family living, hence the name ~ One of my favorite topics of discussion is Family Fun Night and I have dedicated much of my blog space to this subject.
I would love for you to view my site and blog then comment with any suggestions, advice, or encouragement. Thank you for the consideration.
Blessing on your day!

This is so funny. I can picture Danae doing those things. Danae and Kaeli seem like two peas in a pod.
