Conversations with Dell Harper (Part 1)

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

On the way to school yesterday Miss Priss and I were having our normal morning chit-chat about current events ("Look, Mama!  Birdy go by!"), relationships ("I see Jack at school, Mommy.  Jack my friend." and arts and entertainment ("Mommy, I watch Frozen movie.  It my favorite. Elsa my friend.  Anna my friend. Olaf my friend.  They come play at my house?").

We passed a little church on the way and she said, "Look! A cross!" Impressed, I asked her if she learned about the cross in Sunday school.  She replied in the affirmative, and I then asked what else she learned about there.  She said "I learn about Jesus."  Even more impressed, I think back to her weekend baptism of Buddy and start envisioning her as a religious leader- providing faith and comfort to many, and changing the world.

Then she continues.

"Jesus say 'HO, HO, HO, Mommy.  Ho, ho, ho.  Ho, ho, ho."

Hmmm.  I guess Billy Graham  or Mother Theresa she ain't.    


  1. Awesome. This made me giggle!!

  2. So cute! My mom loves recalling the tale of an Easter of my youth. All the kids sat up front in a group and when the priest came forward to give the homily and I yelled, "MOM, IS THAT JESUS?!"

  3. Hahaha that is too cute!!

  4. Bhahahaha!! I love it! Kids are awesome! She is adorable.


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
