While we're in the minivan (read: Josiah thinks he has Mom's undivided attention), Josiah will talk, and talk, and talk about whatever comes to mind...usually in rapid succession, so you'd better keep up. And he's good for coming up with a lot of blog-worthy comments...which is bad, since, well, I'm driving. This is what I managed to copy down while sitting at a traffic light one day this week.
Josiah: Spiders would be man's best friend if it weren't for the poison. You know, eating all the bugs in the house, stuff like that.
When I said that he didn't always have to talk to me the entire time we're in the van but could perhaps talk to Grace who was sitting right beside him, Josiah had his own thoughts on the subject.
Josiah: But, Mom, you're the one with all the answers. You read the Bible, you've probably read most encyclopedias, you can speak Spanish a little bit...so, yeah, you're the person with all the information.
I was speechless with laughter.
