Our Family Shrub

I was watching Grey’s Anatomy the other night and lil man was in and out of the room. I was not paying close enough attention (I generally do not let him watch that at my house) and he was watching it, too.

One of the storylines involved a patient who had a swastika tattooed on his stomach and only wanted a male, white doctor.

Lil man said that he didn’t understand.

I explained that the Nazis had used that symbol during WWII. He asked who the Nazis were and I gave the short version of Hitler and that he hated blacks and Jews and Catholics, among others.

He looked at me in amazement and said “That’s stupid. We’re all the same.”

I agreed and asked him why.

He said, “Because we’re all God’s kids.”

I agreed.

He sat there for a minute and then started making that goofy noise he makes when he wants to laugh and can’t quite find the right sound.

I asked him what was so funny and he told me that if God was his father and God was Grandpa’s father, then he was his own grandpa‘s brother!!

LOL that is cute.

I watched Grey's too. You can at least know he learned something. It is so cool he is so smart. :D

Kid is too smart for his own good. I'm still trying to figure that out.
Your countdown makes me nervous. :)

That's cute - especially about the sound that he makes when he wants to laugh and can't figure out the sound.

That is too cute!

I love their little innocent way of viewing life....if only we could all think that way!

The Princess once asked why some people had "brown skin" and we had white. I told her that God made everyone different. To which she replied..."Well...if he would have asked me...I would choose to have brown skin...because it looks cool!" (hee-hee)

Poor baby...she can not escape the pastiness that is our skin! :)

That's pretty sharp and accurate.
