We were reading Where the Wild Things Are and talking about how Max’s mommy and daddy loved him most of all. Thinking this was a good opportunity to talk about God’s love for us, I started trying to have a teaching moment with Emmie. I was of course very proud of myself for being so spiritual.
Mommy: Emmie, do you know there is someone who loves us even more than Mommy and Daddy?
Mommy: Yes, Someone who loves us the most of all. Do you know who it is?
We’ll keep working on it. Apparently I needed to be humbled more than she needed to talk about eternal things.
