sent by a giant

i know what judah's sunday school lesson was last week in his 3 & 4 year old class because i taught the exact same one to the 5 & 6 class.

so i was excited to ask him about what he had learned.

me: "judah, what did jesus do for us?" (the answers we were looking for were that he took away our sins and/or died on the cross for us.)

judah: " he gave us butterflies and sheep."

me: "okay. well, yes. yes, he did. touche."

me [approaching from a new angle]: "judah, jesus died for us because.....?"

judah: "because goliath sent him."

 breaking news: dead philistine giant sends nazarene messiah to give us butterflies and sheep. amen.


  1. Haha! Love it. Sam told me a few months ago at bedtime, "Mommy, I don't want to pray to Jesus anymore." "Why not, bud?" "I wanna pray to other Jesus." "What's other Jesus? How many are there?" "A lot." So clearly, I am doing an awesome job at parenting.

  2. Hi Keight! I found your blog through some friends of mine that follow you through friends of theirs (oh what tangled blogwebs we weave, eh?). I have been reading through your posts for days now and it is high time I come out of blog-stalker status and introduce myself. I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate your honesty and hilarity. You remind me mucho of my favorite qualities of my best friends and your blog has been a bright spot in my days as of late. Thanks for writing and keep 'em coming!

  3. Did you...toss your child in with the darks? Because I would be okay with that. My children come home all STANKY from school and I have seriously considered just loading them in the Whirlpool.

  4. Ella told me the three wise men gave birth to baby Jesus. There are many things wrong with this story...
