Dialogues with Smurfette#1 (6 years old)
Sunday, after a (very) noticeable earth tremor:
"Mom, is it the sleeping volcano (i.e. the Baldo mountain) awakening?"
"No, sweetheart, that was the mountains (i.e. the Alps) growing up."
(a brief lesson on tectonics with paper sheets followed)
THEOLOGY AND RELATIONSHIPS SESSION:
Yesterday evening, during dinner:
"Mom, I think Jesus was nice when He chose you as my mom."
"And why is that?"
"'Cause I like you very much and you're the coolest mom of all."
"Thanks, love. I like you too."
"Ok, then. So you can give me something sweet instead of that, right?" (*that* being her evening meal, obviously untouched).
