Tonight's Conversation

For Family Home Evening we talked about Jesus Christ, His resurrection and Easter. Chase had been lying in bed for about 45 minutes when he walked out and asked where Jesus was, I answered that He is not here but watching over us, he went back to bed and 15 minutes later the following conversation happened:

Chase: Is Jesus in my room?
Mom: No, he is in Heaven watching over us.
Chase: Is Jesus next to me?
Mom: No, he is getting ready for bed just like you. (trying to get him to go to sleep)
Chase: Jesus is far way.
Mom: Yes
Chase: You have to take an airplane to see Him?
Mom: No, you can't take an airplane.
Chase: You have to take a taxi?
Mom: No.

The conversation continues...

Mom: Jesus, is your big brother...
Chase: He is a big boy like me?
Mom: Yes, Chase he is a big boy like you.

and an hour later he is still up asking where Jesus is.

a taxi! of course, that would make perfect sense to a NYC kid. ok, an hour of this at bed time may be a little much but don't you LOVE that he got the FHE message?

my favorite part is "you have to take a taxi?" ... put that it YOU KNOW YOUR KIDS GREW UP IN NEW YORK WHEN....

so adorable.

I love that Chase is curious and wants to know more about Jesus and where he is and he wants to know how to get to him. You are doing a great job with the kids. Mom

I LOVE this. This just made my morning. A taxi....

I'm surprised he didn't start naming subways.

That'll teach you to have FHE! So great that he is really trying to figure out these big concepts. What a smart kid! Morgan keeps looking at the map in the car and telling us he is going to take us to New York City. I guess we all can't wait to come back again and visit:)

So sweet! I love seeing the difference that where you live makes with your kids perceptions. The taxi comment makes me miss Chicago! I hope you are doing well.
