Kid Quotes

Miss Angie's kindergarten class has fun coming up with words that start with the letter they are learning.  Today it was the letter P.  When it was one little girl's turn she was stumped so Angie was trying to help her.
"What are you?" she asked and one of the other boys said "She's a person!"  Well, that was a good P word but Angie was trying to get her to say princess so she asked "What do you think you are?" and she shouted "Princess".  "Great" said Miss Angie, "Now what does a princess need?" thinking they would come up with prince.  They all thought for a minute and then one of the boys exclaimed "Panties!"  It took several minutes for the class to quit laughing, including Miss Angie who decided that if the princess didn't already have panties, she sure should get some.

American Idol

I just finished the first week of Idol auditions in Hollywood.  I wasn't so sure that I would like Ellen as the replacement judge for Paula but I was pleasantly surprised.  She is a great blend of sweet and sour and very funny, too.  I think I'm going to enjoy this season even more than the past.  The kid who sang Paula's song, something Garcia (sorry, I can't remember his first name) was my favorite.  We'll see if he makes it on group night tomorrow.  I also got a valentine card from my sweet granddaughter, Caroline.  I sent her a valentine card kit so she could make her own this year and she did an excellent job.  I love it!

Kid Quotes

One of our 4 year old boys told his teacher "I can step in cow poop 'cuz I'm a real cowboy".  He's also a real cute cowboy.  And probably real stinky, too.  Then a 3 year old little boy was running around the gym and I asked him "What are you doing?"  and he replied "I'm circling".  Too cute!

Sunday School Lessons

When I was growing up, Sunday was always a special day.  Dinner was always pot roast with potatoes and carrots and either a green salad, red jello with bananas and whipped cream, or cottage cheese with fruit cocktail in it.  When mom invites us over to dinner on Sunday and asks what we want we insist that this is the only thing she can cook on Sunday.  All of us had special Sunday clothes that could only be worn on Sunday or to a wedding or funeral.  Fancy dresses, Sunday shoes, and even socks were reserved for the best day of the week. Sunday best is becoming a phrase that too many people don't understand but it was ingrained into my soul so much that I can't wear casual dress to church.  I especially can't stand to have bare legs-I feel naked.  I have to wear pantyhose, tights, or stockings.  I know so many of the younger generation think it's old fashioned or uncomfortable but I think it shows respect for a sacred day of worship.  Looking your best for the Lord is something that was expected of me growing up and I feel less respectful and worshipful when I don't look my best.  Just my humble opinion.
