It's Nice To Know That He Thinks So Highly Of Us

Yesterday, there came a moment in time where Ben was off doing something somewhere in the house, Josie was taking a nap, Grace and Alex were outside playing and I was...um...well, let's just say that I was "indisposed". I thought that Owen was with Ben, so I was puzzled when I heard him frantically calling for me. I called back, but he did not hear me and only grew more upset. I rushed out and found him running down the stairs near tears, so I swept him up into my arms and hugged him. "Did you think we had all gone off and left you?" I asked him, smiling.


"No!" he replied, obviously relieved. "I just figured that the police had come and taken you all to jail!"

You know what, I wish they still had that show "Kids say the Darndest things" and that Owen could star on it. He would be an absolute RIOT. I cannot believe some of the stuff that he comes up with...he cracks me up.

Oh my word! That is too funny! My daughter tells people all the time that her mommy is going to jail, when they ask why she tells them because she won't wear a seatbelt.
