A “Gift” From God

Conversation on the way home from gymnastics …

Me: “Lucy, do you ever think about God?”

Lucy: “Of course.”

Me: “What do you think about God?”

Lucy: “He is going to give me another sister!”

So, I don’t want to do anything to shake my daughter’s faith, but … no. just. no.

A Cat’s Curiosity, Without the Extra Lives


Lucy (and this is her own account of her motivation) decided to try a science experiment this afternoon. She hypothesized that a button she found would not fit up her nose. Her experiment eventually proved this hypothesis false.

While her mother and I appreciate the conclusive findings, we are less than happy about the hour and a half that it took at the Minor Emergency to reverse the experimental procedure.
