So, after church this past Sunday, I found myself in a conversation with the most adorable, eloquent, 3 year old girl I know. The conversation started simply enough with her telling me about how she had learned about Jesus and monkeys in Sunday school, but then it took an interesting turn. And, of course, I have to share what followed with the entire world, because it is absolutely hilarious…
Clara*: My mom has those big things. Where did you get your big things?
Me (really confused): What big things?
Clara (pointing at my chest): Those big things.
Me (realizing what she’s referring to): Um…Well…those are something grown-up girls get. You’ll have them when you grow up.
(As the words came out of my mouth, I suddenly got worried that I may have said too much, and traumatized her).
Clara: No, I won’t. I’m gonna be a mermaid, and they only have little things.
And then I excused myself because I was cracking up, and I wasn’t sure I would be able to explain to her why I found all of this to be so incredibly funny.
*Her name is changed to protect her and her awesomeness, but anyone who goes to my church can probably guess immediately who I was talking to.
