The kids and I were driving in the van this afternoon and a commercial for a hair removal procedure came on the radio. This is the conversation that followed.
Josiah [genuine disbelief]: Shaving your legs?!
Me: Yes, women shave their legs.
Josiah [still in shock]: But...why?
Me: Because if they didn't, their legs would be about as hairy as a man's legs, and most women don't want that.
Josiah: Oooohhh. So that's why kids like dads more than moms.
Me [waiting for it]: Really.
Josiah [confidently]: Yeah, 'cause dads are more furry...kinda like a pillow.
Me [totally ignoring the "furry/pillow" remark and helping him dig a deeper hole]: So, kids like the dads more than the moms?
Josiah: Sure, except for when the mom fixes a snack, or does something nice for us.
If you think about it--when he comes to mind--please pray for Josiah...he needs it.
Grace: Don't worry, Mom! I like you better than Dad!
So, yes, Grace needs your prayers, too.
