Reilly has been learning about healthy and unhealthy food choices in school as they look towards their Thanksgiving feast. So today at lunch, I thought I'd start a conversation about unhealthy foods just to see what she was comprehending. Here's how our conversation went:

Me: So buddy, what things should we not eat because they are NOT healthy??

Reilly: Well, we shouldn't eat yucky stuff from our nose, that would be not healthy mommy.

Me: well, that's definitely true buddy. What else should we NOT eat?

Reilly: Ummm...we shouldn't eat napkins, plates, ......

Huh. Well, at least she's learning something, right??!! :)

We have been teaching Reilly that when she is scared, she needs to talk to God because He will bring her peace and she won't be scared anymore. The other night, Reilly was heading upstairs and it was dark. I overheard her say out loud as she started walking up: "God, can you help me because I am afraid of the dark."

So precious. So innocent.
