Children understand Jesus so differently than adults. I am thinking about making a label for "Jesusisms" because of all the little things that Curly says. Would that be inappropriate?
I am getting ready to get in the shower and I was just telling her that she had to wait to take her bath until I get out. She knows that she can't take a bath without an adult there to start the tub and keep an eye on her. That's never much of an issue with my rules following little girl. So, she is naming off the adults that can help her with a bath.
"Mommy can give me a bath. Daddy can give me a bath. Grandma can give me a bath, and Vicky Mom, Vicky can give me a bath too."
"Yes, Vicky can give you a bath too."
"And Jesus, Mom. Jesus can give me a bath too."
Yeah, the understanding of a child. "Honey, Jesus doesn't really do baths. He's more in the business of cleaning hearts. Mommy will take care of cleaning the outside of you, and we will let Jesus get the inside. Okay?"
