Me: Maia, you do not hit your brother. You need to love your brother and be nice to him. Jesus wants us to love each other.
Me: Because He...(pause.. how do I explain that the world would be choas if everyone was mean to each other?)...just wants us to be kind and loving toward each other.
Noah: Where is He?
Me: He lives in your heart.
Noah: Where is my heart?
Me: Ummm...uh...inside your chest...
Noah: Jesus, is in there?
Me: (Phew! ) Yup! (Oh please let this be the end)
Noah: (Lifting his shirt) I wanna see Jesus?
Me: Well, you can't see Him, but He's there...in your heart... and He hears you when you talk to Him even though you can't see Him and He wants you to be nice to your sister and He wants you to love her.
Noah: I wanna see Him?
Me: Well...uh...you can't...uh...
Noah: Look Mommy! A tractor!
Me: Thank you Lord for sending the tractor to rescue me!
Ay yaiy yaiy!
