I love to carpool!!! (I know that doesn't fit with my title...but it will make sense later)
One of the things I love about carpooling, besides the savings on gas, is the conversations that take place in the backseat between a 6 year old boy and my 5 year old Lilly (or Lillian as she is preferring these days.)
We carpool with my bud Annie and her kids. On Monday's and Friday's I drive us down to school. There are always interesting conversations that take place; like the fact that Reid wants to marry Lilly but she always shoots him down with the comment, "Reid only God knows who I am going to marry...and it's not you!" I keep telling her this playing hard-to-get is just making him want to marry her more. But the conversation on Monday took the cake for hysterical.
As we were driving we were listening to Christmas music. This made Reid think about his favorite music group.
Reid: "I like the band Switchfoot because they sing about God."
Lilly: "I believe in God"
Reid: "Me too"
Lilly: "I believe in God and Jesus too!"
Reid: "They are the same person"
Lilly: "Well I believe in God and Jesus...and SANTA CLAUSE!"
---insert a swerve in the driving because I was stifling a laugh---
Reid: "I don't believe in Santa Clause"
Lilly: "WHAT!!!! Well then, you are not getting any presents this year"
Reid: "Yes I am...he always brings me presents"
Lilly: "Not if you don't believe in him!"
Reid: "Well God doesn't want us believing in Him and in Santa Clause"
Lilly: "Yes He does!! We need to believe in all 3!"
Reid: "But God and Jesus are the same!"
Lilly: "Well if you don't believe in Santa you are not getting any presents"
Reid: "Yes I am"
Lilly: "Reid...I am done arguing with you. I'm looking out my window now"
I felt like I should interrupt...but their little minds were really trying to figure it all out and it was so cute!
Lilly has no idea what the Trinity is, but I like her take on it.
