Road Trip Conversations

On Friday, we drove to Dallas to meet friends at the Arboretum. It takes about 45 minutes to get there and Caedmon talked ALL the way there. As is typical at this age, lots of the talking revolved around the word "WHY." However, with Caedmon my answer rarely satisfies and he usually ends up trying out his own answer. Our conversation ranged from Zacchaeus, the tax collector, to space aliens. Here are some snippets from my favorite topics:

Topic #1 (HEAVEN)

C-boy: How do you get to Heaven?

I (seeing an opportunity to talk about Jesus) launch into an explanation of salvation struggling and praying to make it simple yet deep enough to reach the heart of my almost 3 year old.

C-boy: No, mama, it's a long, long plane ride.

I try once again to explain that it has nothing to do with earthly transportation.

C-boy: no, Mama, it is a long airplane ride and... it's a little bit of a drive, too!

Topic #2 (VASELINE)

(background: we've been putting vaseline on Caedmon's head wound to try to keep the scarring to a minimal)

C-boy: Mommy, there's something I noticed about vaseline.

Me: Oh ???

C-boy: It looks like BOOGERS !
