While exercising new sipirtual muscles

"Thank you for our Father who twirls in Heaven above."
Zac 4 years 11 1/2 months
Not only did he say this in his prayer but he said it so deliberately that he pointed out the mention of the twirling Father after tonight's prayer, saying he had said it because he had learnt it in a song.
I know that music and dance are ways to praise God but until tonight I hadn't thought of Him singing or dancing. Maybe He does.

Smarter than my other average bears

Too fast she has grown. Poppy is still much faster when she crawls but that isn't stopping her from trying to run away from me. In the evening when the boys have been put to bed I'll watch TV or surf and Poppy will cruise. She'll then get it into her head that she wants to visit the boys. Obviously she is delusional with tiredness and has forgotten how they torment her daily. What gives her away is that she stands in the doorway and hesitates. Right there she is making her decision. It goes something like this.

"Do I just play here on the floor OR make a run for the boys where they will laugh at me and encourage me to be deliciously naughty."..."Oh look Mum left the hallway door open. The Fates have spoken."..."Here I go. To the bedroom."...one step, two step, thr.."Oh no! Mum's coming. RUN!" ...Smack..."Scratch that. CRAWL!!!"..."Ha, ha, ha, she got me. Oh well better luck next time."

Buy Me a Pony


I want to be a cow girl,
I'll need to have a horse,
My parents didn't get me one,
They cost too much of course.

My husband gave me kids,
I cannot ride them, yet,
I would get in trouble,
If on them I did get.

I'll have to get my own horse,
I'll save the money now,
To buy a Thoroughbred,
I wouldn't want a cow.

I wish I were these lucky girls,
But for now it seems,
A cow girl in my mind,
I only have my dreams.

"You know Mum, dinosaurs lived a very,very,very....long time ago. So did Jesus.
(pause) Jesus gave the Fossils the last supper. Then when Jesus died the Fossils became the missionaries. Mum we see the Fossils at Church."
