Seeing through ROSE colored lenses

I am thoroughly enjoying my 3 year old's fresh perspective on this world.

I think you will too; enjoy life through the eyes of Isabelle Rose:

May 4th
9:25 am

Belle: "Mommy, my nose is running! I need a tissue!"
ejk: "Here you go, baby."
(She wipes her nose...)
"Look at the tissue & tell mommy what color your snot is. Is it clear, yellow, green?"
(Hey, you don't have to have a nursing degree to know there are a lot of things one can know from the color of their kids' snot)
Belle: "Umm, I think it looks kind of sparkly."
ejk: "So its clear?"
Belle: "No, it looks...it looks...its the color of a Forsifia (forsythia) bush."
ejk: "Oh! So its bright yellow? Let me see your tissue, honey.
"Well, your snot must be clear because I don't see anything on the tissue."
Belle: "Well mommy, just because you cannot see the snot doesn't mean that its not there. Snot is like Jesus. You can't see him, but he's really there."

May 4th

Family Christian Bookstore

Belle & I are together looking through the card department. As she browsed, she periodically picked up a card & tucked it under her arm. When I asked her what she was doing, she said, "These are just for you, mommy. I picked out all the ones with your name on it. See, 'M-O-M'."

That is Mother's Day enough for me!
