I've been hanging out in these forums..really enjoying the friendly banter back and forth...also some of the tremendous insight that some responces have! I want you to know that I have been very impressed with your answers to alot of these post's up here. Are you a teacher in the LDS church? You should be if you are not. Also, how did you get those neet quotes on your post's? I have a very large collection of idiums and quotes...would love to put one or two of my favorites up here....Like this one: "Did it ever occure to you that nothing ever occured to God?" or: "God never loses His temper, He only looses it!"

God Bless!!!!

Yediyd,

Thank you for your kind words. I am not LDS. I identify now with a nondenominational Christian. I'm a sinner saved by grace. I am not a Bible scholar but I've started to read, make sense of, and grow in my understanding of the Lord. If you stay around, you will quickly see that CrimsonKairos (CK), a-train, and others on this site are the LDS thinkers/teachers-not me. I'm thankful to be able to come here and kick some ideas around.

As for the quotes, if you put

some words here and then add [/ quote] (without the space after the slash)

it will make the quotes. You can also type your post you can highlight it and then look at the toolbar with the bold, italics, underline, etc. Right next to the image of a tree is a quote bubble. If you click on that, it will insert the quote box for you. Hope that helps.

Thank you again.

After picking up Nick from pre-school one day we drove past a cemetary. We had drive that way for months but this day he said "Mama, isn't that where dead people go"? pointing to the cemetary. I said yes hunny. He then said rather puzzled. "But mama, how do they turn into flowers?"

He is still just that sweet. :)

My son has provided me with some good ones. I think many of you are familiar with the time we had just moved into our present ward; my son was almost three. As they were passing the Sacrament and all was silent, he stood up in his seat, turned to me and said loudly, "Daddy, pull my finger!" I could hear people snickering and choking all around as I looked for a hole to crawl into.

I got blamed for that. :hmmm:

Fast forward to last month. He turned twelve, and I got to ordain him. The Bishop called him up to give him his certificate for graduating Primary, and asked for the ward to sustain him as a Deacon with a show of hands. Then he asked if any oppose, by the same sign. My son immediately turned and looked at me. When he sat back down, he leaned over and said, "I just knew you were gonna raise your hand!" Cue more snickering from the seats around us... :lol:

my brother and his kids had a game, when someone passed gass they would blame it on someone else. (i know you can see the problem with this already) the louder it was the louder you blamed, so that everyone could know "it wasn't you". my neice, 4 i guess she was, around there, passed gass and loud while the sacrament was being passed, and then said just as loud "daddy!" no one would believe it wasn't him no matter how hard he tried to explain the game. lol serves him right.

lol and cute. My children, even though the table is set for dinner and the food is ready to be served, often ask, "What's for dinner." Being that it is so obvious, I often say, "Rocks." One night we went through that ritual and my son, two at the time, said to his two brothers, "We're eating chicken (which he called all meat, regardless of whether it was or not) and daddy's eating nunk." I asked him to repeat what he said and he said, "You're eating nunk." I took a couple of seconds to understand what he was saying. "Nunk" was his way of saying "skunk."

===

Last night I came face to face with a live nunk. :wow: It was about 11:30 and my wife and I were preparing for bed. Since THEIR can is now an outside cat, I asked, "Did they boys give Sas water?" My wife said, "I think it's empty." As I went, in quiet protest, to fill her water, I started thinking, "Does she want me to get skunked (as I remembered the skunk incident last year). I looked out the back door, couldn't see anything. Turned the lights off and still couldn’t see anything so I slowly opened to door, still not able to see anything because of the dark. I opened it wider and started to take a step and saw, staring me in the eyes with it's tail standing straight up (thankfully it was faced away from me, that's why I said eye to eye) from literally about 4½ feet away, was a huge skunk! I closed the door and it wandered around the backyard but would not leave for some time. I was telling the boys the story this morning and we were playing around. I started saying, "So and so eats nunks, so and so eats nunks, etc. and I eat chocolate." Ethan said, "Yeah, you eat chocolate snunks" :lol: My three year old now changed it from "nunks" to "snunks."

I was visiting my sister one summer - so that I could see and visit with my little brothers children, they would each come and spend a day and a night with us Aunties.

The youngest - 3 years old - was the first to visit. As we were getting him ready for bath time, my sister (who is unmarried and 4 years older than me), would take his shirt off, smell it, wrinkle up her nose, say- Peeeuuu, stinky and toss it on the floor, then came the shoes, smell, Peeuuu, stinky, toss on the floor. Socks - same thing, pants same thing. When she went to take off his underpants, he squirmed away from her and dashed towards the bathroom - he stopped about 3 feet from her, whipped off the underpants and flipped them at her- they landed right in her lap and as they were flying through the air he laughed and said: Here - Smell Those - Auntie - then he squeeled and ran into the bathroom, laughing.

I nearly wet myself laughing. He truely understood and carried off the joke.

This one made me feel old.

My son who was probably about 8 at the time asked me. Mom...when are you going to dye your hair brown? I responded. My hair is brown. No mom it's grey.

I was at the hair salon two days later getting it dyed..."brown"

Okay let me run that word "experienced" by my teenagers now. I'm sure they will have some smart comment. lol

yesterday my babe awoke and immediately stated that he had had a very bad dream...awwwww :(

the dream ~

"it was about serious elves.....they were gathering mints." :unsure:

he refers to the time before he was born as living inside a "seed".....and talks about his birth as when he "popped out of the seed"...... ^_^ ....so he asked me last night,

"mama, where you come from?....did you be in a seed too?"...:D

after that he sat down to draw a self portrait. he was very quiet and concentrating, then jumped up, ran over to me and demanded to know

"mama, why we have hair on our eye blinks????"

(oh, ^_^eye lashes on our eyelids...hehe)....

and then, "do we really need them???"

lol, he was so serious and puzzled about the hair on our eyeblinks. :lol:

About a month ago, my husband and I were called to visit with the Bishop. Our 5 year old son and 4 year old daughter agreed to stay in the foyer while we visited with the Bishop. We were asked to become ward missionaries! It was quite a shock and very overwhelming to me. Living in Idaho Falls, Idaho we are very blessed to only have to drive 10 minutes to get to the temple. It is one of our favorite places to go and drive near to feel a bit closer when we can't go. So after our appointment I asked my husband if he would mind if we took a drive to be near the temple. He agreed, and off we went. As we were near the temple I decided to ask a question of my children to see what they would say. I asked both of them, "Can either one of you tell me who is on top of the temple?" Without missing a beat my son jumped in and said, "It's a JEDI!" My husband enjoyed a good chuckle and then had to stop the car to explain who Moroni is. Even now as we drive to the temple, Aaron says, "Look, there's the temple with Amoroni!" We love their additions to our otherwise boring lives! LOL

On a quite similar note, my sister and her family were in Salt Lake City when they asked the same question. "Who is on top of the temple?" My four-year-old nephew jumped in and said, "I don't know, but what's he shootin' at?" :mellow::rolleyes:

Tonight I tucked my son into bed and felt his sheet all wet. I asked, "Why is your bed wet?" He answered matter-of-factly, "Because water is wet." He must have heard me say that. He's 3. I had to laugh.
