That Oft-Told Parable of Jesus the Thug
Posted On June 3, 2008
Conversation that took place in the backseat of the Sentra yesterday afternoon after Boy #2 told some sort of lie, which has lately become his favorite hobby:
Boy #3: Jesus and God doesn’t like it when you lie! (Actually pronounced, “why” by the 3-year-old.)
Boy #2: Fine. Sorry, Jesus and God! (Said under his breath in the most sarcastic voice he could muster.)
Me: Hey, #2, that is no way to talk to Jesus and God!
Boy #3: Yeah, Jesus and God will come down here and punch you in the head!
Note to self: Make sure kids attend church on Sunday.
I am so glad that children are considered “innocent” because I would fear for their little souls sometimes, otherwise. Daughter #1 once had to have a little talking to about the words “poop” and “butt” not being allowed in prayers. And if it makes you feel any better, today I gave the kids pomegranate juice for lunch, which they haven’t had for a long, long time and same daughter proclaimed that hers tasted like beer! I told her that she had never drank beer, so how did she know? But the sad part was that then I tasted it, and it did taste like beer. So that freaked me out slightly that she was able to pick up on that so quickly. So then I told her that she had never drank beer and that I don’t want to talk about it any more, but the whole rest of the lunch she would take a drink and say “Ahhh…my beer is good!” As long as she doesn’t say that in the lunchroom next year, we’re good.
turkeypants, I’m sure Daddy will be proud! 🙂
That was hilarious. HA HA HA! It reminds me of a story when my boys were little. I’ll have to create a post for that!
iowa mom, ooh, you left me hanging! I’ll be looking for that post! 🙂
Jesus the Thug!!! ROFL, that’s a good one.
This actually reminds me, I think my son #1 (almost 10) has been sarcastic with just about everyone except Jesus or God. 😉
