Bedtime Story January 8, 2011

Filed under: adoption thoughts — Elizabeth @ 9:17 PM

Tonight at bedtime, Isaac asked if he could tell me a bedtime story.  Here is how it went:

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Mommy and she had a friend named Jason.  They had 2 boys, Isaac and Matthew…..and then Ben was there (Ben is their cousin) and he said, “Look, a family!”.  And then they all went to heaven.  The end.

I think this was his way of letting me know he gets it.

    see? you did an amazing job handling this situation! 😉
    and p.s. um…why did you all go to heaven?? does he mean like, right then and there?!

    • As for why we all immediately went to heaven….he and I had been discussing (yet again!) our dead cat, Tuffy, and I told Isaac we would see Tuffy again one day in heaven. So it could have been that or the fact that the 2 books he chose for bedtime, were chapters from the King James Bible, and he just had God and heaven on the brain!!

  4. so perfect. he gets it, and it’s almost like an apology. sweet boy.
