Random Thoughts #13: Kid-isms!!


A whole post dedicated to the quotable daycare kids I help watch ๐Ÿ™‚ They’ve been super talkative lately ๐Ÿ˜‰

3rd grade boy: “God is like water. Water can take the shape of anything. And God can too. I just came up with that. Right now.”

Same boy: “I want to be an investment banker, because teachers aren’t paid enough and they have to work really hard.” Genius.

2nd grade girl to friend, on a hot day: “Why should I go go over there with you when you don’t even know what you want to do? I’d just be spending my body energy!”

The food chain, as told by a 2nd grader: “And then the whale ate the shark, and the blue whale ate the whale.”

As tech-savvy as the kids of this generation are…they stand there fascinated by a simple Etch-a-Sketch. Losing the old skills, we are.

Elementary-age kid about his sister in middle school: “She got a phone, and she was like “I’ll never ask for anything again”; and the next thing you know, she wants a laptop.” ๐Ÿ˜†

5th grade girl: “My dad likes to get massages when we go on a cruise; I think it’s so he can get to lie down and not be considered lazy.”

Later, she was weighing the con of having to wear a fancy dress to the dinners on the cruise, with the pro of said dinners being all-you-can-eat buffets. ๐Ÿ˜†

5th grade girl (not same one): “I’m going to say “over yonder” instead of “over there.”” #paidattentioninLitclass ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Boy 1: “Cricket is like the British version of baseball. Except with flat bats.”
Boy 2: “But not flat like a platypus??”
Boy 1: “No, flat like a paddle.”

*kids in daycare are watching a movie, and a character starts crying, then soft music plays*
Kid 1: “Oh, no, not the piano music!”
Kid 2: “Yeah, that makes crying in movies worse!”

One Sunday, the younger grades sang “The Lamb” in church. Their sweet voices singing the simple melody beautifully illustrated 2 things:
1) the innocence of the Lamb, Jesus
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29
2) His care over us, especially children, as the Good Shepherd over lambs
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. John 10:11
But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Luke 18:16
Listen to the song here:

Clouds


This picture I took in Colorado

He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

~ Job 26:8 ~

Land


And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

~ Genesis 1:9 ~
