The honesty

Said while driving down the road. Avery was telling me about all her friends from church when she stopped and asked

Avery: "Mommy, who are your friends?"
Me: I responded by naming some of my friends that she would know. She got really quiet and just looked at me for a minute with a very concerned expression.
Avery: "That's not very many friends mommy. You might need to make some more. But I'll share some of mine with you so you can have fun with friends too."

There's nothing like a 3 year old telling you that you must live a boring life =)

Said during family devotions one night

Brent (reading from their children's Bible): "God said, You can eat the fruit of any tree in the garden. But you must not eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil..."
Avery: "Wait, does that mean I'm NOT supposed to have the fruit of the Spirit?"

Brent tried explaining and then just switched to talking about how God has rules for us to follow.

Brent: "What is a rule that God has for you to follow?
Avery: "To obey mommy and daddy"
Elliana: "To love Connor"
(Connor is Avery's best friend. Whether Elliana feels she needs to love him b/c she wants to be around him or b/c she's a little bit jealous of how much she gets left out when Connor comes over to play, we'll never know! =) )
