A Child's Thoughts on Heaven

by Traci Schumacher on Thu, 02/24/2011 - 11:40pm

My preschooler loves for my husband and me to read Bible stories to him, and we love to hear his take on God and all things spiritual. He has a kids' Bible full of colorful pictures of people wearing robes and sandals and such.

The other night my husband had read a few Bible stories to our son before bed. Then, when they were saying good night, our son commented that there must be only poor people in heaven.

Height Requirements for Marriage?

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 02/22/2011 - 3:58pm

My 4-year-old son: "Mommy, can I marry you when I grow up?"

Me: "No."

Son: "Why? Because you're too tall?"

My 4-Year-Old Considers Marriage and His Future

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 02/15/2011 - 3:32pm

Yesterday, after I picked up my almost-5-year-old from school, as we were driving home, he proceeded to inform me that he has decided whom he will marry. He told me he has chosen a nice little girl in his class, but he was worried about their future because he doesn't have enough money to buy a house.

After making sure he was aware that he must be grown up before he can marry anyone, I told him they could start out renting an apartment or house while they save up enough money to buy a house.

Haircut? What Haircut?

by Traci Schumacher on Thu, 01/27/2011 - 3:23pm

Yesterday, while the kids were in school, I got my hair cut – not merely a trim, but a new style. It's not radically different, but noticeably so. Or so I thought.

When I picked up my 4-year-old son from pre-K he did not mention my hair at all. We went home, played a little Wii together, a couple hours passed, and it was time to go pick up my daughter.

My daughter (age 6) hopped into the minivan, and, before she even sat down, asked, “Did you get your hair cut?” To which my son replied, “What? Did you?”

The Beauty of Iceberg Lettuce

by Traci Schumacher on Wed, 01/19/2011 - 12:24pm

Ah, the conveniences of modern life... cell phones, microwaves, salad-in-a-bag. Things we so easily take for granted. Yesterday, instead of buying my usual bagged romaine lettuce, I opted for a head of iceberg lettuce, thinking it would be fun for my kids to help make salad and hoping they would gobble it up like they do the salad at The Olive Garden.

The Magical Eater of Chocolate

This afternoon, my 4-year-old son ate two Hershey's kisses. Afterward, he looked at his hands in amazement.

“Look!” he exclaimed, “I ate chocolate and didn't even get any on my hands!”

Then he proudly and happily concluded, “I'm magic!”

Too Quiet or Too Giggly Means Trouble

by Traci Schumacher on Mon, 07/12/2010 - 10:23am

My son, age 4, is a boy of action. If he wants something, he does all he can to make it happen – climbing, cutting, moving things. He is also bright and readily amused, and has a tendency toward mischief. I have come to realize that either too much quiet or too much hilarious laughter can be sure signs of trouble where my big guy is concerned.
