I Really Don't Know What To Title This Post

Jessica was sitting on the edge of the kitchen table watching me cook dinner:

"Mom, I'm happy you are who you are and daddy is who he is. We get to celebrate Hanukkah because Daddy is Jewish. And we get to celebrate Christmas because you're human."

  • I burst out laughing at this one Shannon... how great! I've just been through a BIG church debacle so it's great to hear a child's perpective!

  • Oh my god, this made me cry, I was laughing so hard.


    But it's good to know you're human, Shannon.

  • Like Julia, I laughed so frickin' hard that I cried. Then had to send it to a few people. They also laughed until they cried.

    Man, that is funny. Re-reading it now. Still laughing.

    Almost as funny as a fig leaf. ;)

  • Shannon,
    I love when kids say stuff like this. When my kids were little, I started keeping a notebook of the cute things they would say. If I ever want to laugh & cry at the same time, I get out those notebooks.

    It sounds like you've got some great material in Jessica. How cute!

  • That is hilarious. I had to curb my laughter so I wouldn't wake up my daughter. Like the name of the show Bill Cosby use to host, "Kids say the darnedest things"

  • Hilarious!

    Maybe Title it - The Human Side of Shannon.

  • You should chronicle her perspectives on things as Jessicisms.

    So innocent, yet revolutionary!
