Big and Wise
Pretty good hope and dream so far.
Ellie's reply was: "I want to be a fairy, but I know it is never going to come true." Jensen's interjected and said, "Yes Ellie, you can be a fairy- when you go to Heaven you can be an angel with wings and they are just like fairies." I then tried to convince her that she could be a happiness fairy (she has done her fair share of complaining the last few days). She said, "happiness fairy?!?" then started dancing around singing "happiness fairy... happiness fairy." I'll let you know how long it lasts :-)
Then Jensen started talking about how he was so excited to be baptized, and when he turns eight he is going to be "Big and Wise." He said, "Mom I am really happy about that!" I said, "about what" then he proceeded to tell me that he was really excited to be "big and wise" after he is baptized.
I didn't want to tell him that I was baptized years and years ago and I still don't feel big and wise.
