It's a High Price To Pay

Actual conversation tonight at Bible study between my five year old daughter Hailey and our pastor's daughter, 4 and a half year old Abby.

Hailey: Abby, do you know what is going to happen to us when we get grown up?

Abby: No, what?

H: Well, we can still be friends, but we can’t play anymore.

A: Grown-ups don’t play?

H: No, they just sit around and talk and drink things.

A: They do?

H (indicating the adults in the group, who were sitting around drinking coffee): Yeah, look at them.

A: But I still want to play!

H (shaking her head sadly): I know, but it’s just something we are going to have to deal with.

A: At least we’ll be able to write our names pretty like our Mamas.

You should point out that adults do play...ball, family defender, etc. Our toys just cost more! ;-)

Too, too funny!

And hey, to some of us, standing around drinking coffee IS play!

That is very cute. I love watching children have conversations. They can say some of the funniest things.
