Me: You need to stay buckled so you won't get hurt
Malachi: If we have a accident?
Me: Yes. You could get really big owies.
Malachi: I could just get two band aides and then it would be ok.
Me: Malachi, it would be a lot worse. You could be in the hospital. (Of course I am trying to be super serious because I don't want him, for any reason to unbuckle.)
Malachi: Oh......then I just get a real big band aide and I would be fixed....oh....OK mom!!
So what are big owies to 4 year old boys? Ones that need big band aides. So funny! It is also great that today's lesson at VBS was that God's word is comfort. Nothing like a good way to show them a real example of finding comfort...in any situation with God's Word! HA..love it.
