Cutest kid EVER
I came home tonight to see the kids and put them to bed. Jensen loves to talk at night after his stories and songs. He loves to stall the inevitable fact that I will leave his room eventually. He definitely got this from me. I always asked my mom for a drink just so I would have that one more minute of company. This was our conversation tonight:
Jensen: Mom, today at co-op there was a girl with three fingers and one finger. (holding up those fingers on each hand)
Me: Oh, really?
Jensen: yeah... why does she only have three fingers and one finger? still holding up those fingers.
Me: Well Heavenly father made every body a little different. Her body formed that way when her mommy was pregnant. Do you know anyone else that doesn't have all of their fingers?
Jensen: Yes, grandpa Vern has fingers like this. (changing the three finger hand to two fingers.)
Me: yep, your right, and we love grandpa Vern so much and Heavenly Father gave him two fingers. Also, your baby sister was born with a perfect body, but her heart doesn't quite work.
Jensen: But why does Heavenly Father want everyone to be different?
Me: He wanted to make us all different so he could love us so much. If everyone was named Jensen and looked like you, I wouldn't know which one was my Jensen. I wouldn't know which one to love so much.
Jensen: oh...(big sigh) Mom, if everyone were just Jensens I would be the one in the back, the one that could love you the most.
It pays to come home from time to time!! This kid is so sweet! Today was a really tough day at the hospital and just having everyday conversations with him help me believe that someday, someday life will be normal again.
