Boo: I need a new bed.
Me: What’s wrong with your bed?
Boo: The design….the whole design is just scary.
Boo: Yes….the poles have eyes….and huge teeth. They watch me.
Me: What if we just imagine they are cupcakes?
Boo: Won’t work. People see things in different ways you know.
Point taken. I see them now. And I think the eyes are watching me too.
Time for a new bed.
Boo: I’d like to keep my sheets though.
We’ve had an issue with eyes today. While I was teaching VBS today a little boy raised his hand and asked:
Why is the mouse dead on your dress?
He’s right. The mouse does look dead. Now Boo wants to know why the mouse is dead. I don’t have an answer for that.
I also don’t have an answer for this conversation that took place in the car:
Boo: Why does God make bad things?
Me: He doesn’t make bad things…I think it’s about free will. Because we are free to do what we want….bad things can happen.
Boo: But that doesn’t explain tornadoes….
