A Jesus Story . . . as Told by My 4 Year Old Daughter!


Photo by pippalou on Morgue File.

On most nights, we lay down with our girls and tell them a “Jesus story”. My daughters favorite Jesus story is the one about him walking on water during the storm. It is the one they always ask to hear. I have told that particular one about a million times in the past few months! Read the rest of this entry »

Who’s the Boss?

There was a TV show that aired from the mid 80’s to the early 90’s titled, Who’s the Boss? The show starred Tony Danza and a young Alyssa Milano. I never really watched the show. I maybe watched a handful of shows from the series.

This post really has nothing to do with that show. I just happened to think of it as I was thinking of making the post.  Read the rest of this entry »

A Trip to the Dentist to Battle Sugar Bugs!

My wife took our four-year old daughter to the dentist yesterday to have a cavity filled. We were certain this would be an epic meltdown for our daughter. The procedure had been scheduled for a couple of weeks ago, but some other things came up and we were not able to keep the appointment at that time. But yesterday, the time had come to face the music. Read the rest of this entry »

Which quirky habit annoys you the most, and what quirky habit do you love — in yourself, or others.

Quirks are what make us individuals, right? And yes, they can be annoying! We may call them quirks. We may call them idiosyncrasies. We may call them odd. Whatever we may wish to call them, the truth remains, everyone has them. The question is does others quirks annoy you more than your own or vice versa? I have heard of accounts where a person will have several quirks and will feel compelled to do them any number of times; getting to the point that it exasperates them to do them, but they feel they have to do them.

Parenting Misfires and Backfires!


Last night, I was trying to teach my three-year old daughter, (who has inherited something of a stubborn streak from some unknown, alien source!), about the importance of cleaning up after herself.

She was not in much of a mood to clean up the living room floor.  She also was insisting on watching T.V.  I thought this would be a good opportunity to kill the proverbial two birds with one stone. Read the rest of this entry »

Of Ferris Wheels, Tattoos, and Lullabies


It was time to put my three year old daughter to bed.  She likes to have someone lie down with her as she goes to sleep.  She and I say it’s our time to snuggle together.  She doesn’t like to go to sleep right away though, unless she is extremely tired.  Many times she likes for you to tell her a story or two or three or . . . .  Other times she just wants to chat for a bit.  And you never know where the conversation is going to go!   Read the rest of this entry »

The Gospel According to My Three Year Old Daughter . . . (More or Less)

ImageThis morning my three year daughter told me she had a dream last night.  I asked her what she dreamed.  She told me, still half-awake, half-asleep (it was seven in the morning), she had dreamed about Jesus.
