I'm busted, I committed to getting my kids to church in a blog post several weeks back after an incident with my daughter and her thoughts on where God resides. But here we are several weeks later and clearly I have not followed through with the church thing because this is the conversation we had this afternoon:
E: Mom, did you know that people's skin comes in all different colors like, black, brown, white, blondish?
ME: I did know that honey. But people have blond hair, however I wouldn't say they have blond skin.
E: Yes they do, look at your arms, with all that hair you would have to say you have blond skin.
Nice, kid. Thanks. Mental note - make an appointment for a full body wax.
E: And God has blue skin and wears a striped hat and has brown curly hair. He also has blue eyes, oh yeah and a curly tail.
Wow, really really we need to get to church before this gets too bad.
