I’ve been staying with my daughter and her three children (ages 8, 5 and 2) for a few weeks now. One of my favorite things about being around young children is the amusing things they say. The other day my granddaughter and I were going for a walk and she was singing a song she’d learned at church, one I recognized, and when she got to the part where it goes, “at the cross of Calvary,” she sang, “at the cross of Calorie.” Oh my, what nuggets of joy and laughter children produce!
My daughter and her husband pray with their children every night before bed, and also sing a little song with them. The other night I happened to overhear part of their nighttime routine, and they were near the middle of the song when my daughter paused singing long enough to say: “You two, cut it out!” She then resumed her singing and finished the song along with the rest of the family. This grandma was overcome with giggles.
