Lighten the Load

I have been doing these big, heavy posts lately, so here is a happy little short story for you.

The other day in the car The Boy was rambling on in the back seat about some lizard (as he does quite often...) when I heard him mention what I thought was Jesus Christ. That doesn't usually come up in his lizard I said, "What did you just say?"

"The basilisk lizard Mommy...dat one is also known as the Jesus price lizard." (It took me three google tries to figure out how the hell to spell "basilisk").

Me: "Honey, do you mean Jesus Christ lizard?"

"No Mommy. Jesus PRICE lizard. Dat is what he is sometimes called."

"Why is he called that?"

"Because he walks on water. I guess da price guy does dat sometimes too."


Clearly I need to step up my religious education for my child...

That's too cute!

When my baby brother was very little my grandmother told him he was "so mischievous", he proudly announced to everyone that "Mamaw said I'm Miss Jesus"!
