Family Hike Spring, 2014

It’s 7:30 pm and we’re in the car, leaving the park and heading home to start the bedtime routine.

Wes: Mommy, why can’t we see the park anymore?
Me: Because it’s too dark out.
Wes: Mommy, why is it too dark out?
Me: Because the sun went down.
Wes: Mommy, why did the sun go down?
Me: Because it’s night time.
Wes: Mommy, why is it night time?
Me: …..uh, because Jesus made it night time.
Wes: Mommy, why did Jesus make it night time?
Me: To help all the people and all the animals sleep better.
Wes: Mommy, why do animals sleep?
Me: Because they need rest just like people.
Wes: Mommy, what does Jesus use to make it night time?
Me: ……uh…..uh….I don’t know buddy.
(I’m never prepared when his questions get deep)
Wes: Mommy, you aaaallllways say you don’t know.
Me: I guess you’re right buddy.

All day, every day.

  6. Such a sweet post! It took me down memory lane. I always love when you post pictures of your beautiful family. I think there is a book all about questions and answers for little children but for the life of me I can’t think of the name of it. Maybe the library could help you. It is answers many of the questions that Wes asked.

    God Bless

  7. Lol…. That’s great…. Love the pics! Where are your pants from?

  8. great when you treat us to your family outings. Wait until you are getting 2002 questions.!!I recall thinking this was Jesus way of helping me continue to learn by having to do some research AND even told the children this and you can believe they did not forget that. It was as if we were on a learning path to see how much Mommy could be pushed to learn. It was truly some of the happier times. And the Lord did help me learn many new things through my children.

  9. I too have a son that asked a ton of questions, then a good friend gave me priceless advice. The next time they ask a series of questions, respond with…”What do you think?” I learned something that day, my son knew the answer to every question! It was less draining on me when all I had to say was, “What do you think?” And them I would affirm him that he was right!

  10. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your site.
