More Convos With Laylee

This afternoon I was trying to take a wee nap.  What better time for Laylee to engage in some fascinating discussion?

Laylee:  The monsters are keeping me awake.
Me [lobbing an imaginary can with my eyes still closed]:  Spray them with this Monster Spray.
Laylee:  Okay, I sprayed them and it killed them and now they’re DEAD.
Me:  That’s kind of harsh.  Usually I just spray them and it makes them sneeze so they leave my room.
Laylee:  Well they’re really annoying and I want them to be dead.  So I spray them and then they die.  Then I throw them out in the forest with the lions and they eat them and then they poop them out in the toilet and flush them away.  I don’t like monsters.

When I relayed this conversation to Dan, he remarked that she has quite a vivid understanding of the circle of life, or, I might add, the digestive system. 

Laylee:  I just said a little prayer and Jesus said it’s time for us to play a game.
Me:  Maybe if He said that, He’ll play a game with you.  I’m sleeping.
Laylee:  Nope.  He says He wants you to play it. He’s tired. 

I know He is, but what am I?

    What with the Salvation of the world and all — He needs a rest — the least you could do is occupy your own kids huh??

    Jeez the nerve of the Savior….

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am SO GLAD I wasn’t drinking anything when I read that!!

    A three year old BabyGirl once told me, “God lives in my heart, and I want a banana, and God loves me, and that’s what God says!” There’s no arguing with the will of The Almighty especially when it comes to snack time.

  3. heather says:

    hmmm, that is good! I love that, He wants you to play! Did He happen to mention what game he wanted you to play with Laylee?

  4. Your kid is a nutter. And I love her!

  5. HolyMama! says:

    He’s tired. HA! (ooh, she’s gooOOod.)

  6. Toddler Logic + Theology = Hahahahahaha!

  7. owlhaven says:

    yea, she’ll be a force to be reckoned with at 14


  8. Pam in Utah says:

    Very creative of her! It’s tiring to have such smart kids, isn’t it! But fun–right AFTER nap time. 🙂 I remember being so sleep deprived I am surprised I made it through my kids’ childhood. Good luck to you!

    “I know He is but what am I?”

    I would say YOU’RE good. And yet, still tired.

  10. Mary C says:

    You are so funny. What a great way to start my day! PS- thanks for commenting on my hubs’ new blog (mybestinvest). You are very kind!

  11. Mary says:

    Oh the Laylee conversations are some of my favorite posts. Hilarious!

  12. Sketchy says:

    Wow! That’s pretty sharp…ummm so did you destroy her faith in her almighty or get up and play a game?

  13. Haha! So cute! Its fun when they think they can get you to do what they want because God said so. Just because we use that to get them to do what we want…… sheesh! God wants you to obey mommy, He said so in His book.
    Trinity said something quite interesting lately too, check out my Feb. 2 Trinity funnies!

  14. bon says:

    You’d think that Jesus, as tired as he is, would help a mama out and suggest it’s QUIET time and not PLAY time!

  15. Kimberly says:

    Good heavens…my first time visiting your blog and I’m laughing so hard my two year old is giving me a very concerned look and asking, “Mommy-Mom? You okay?”

    Never thought of the possibility that my kids might use their faith against me…eerie, that’s what that is!

  16. amydeanne says:

    hehe, sounds like my kids! Everything is DEAD when they’re done with them! lol

  17. Nicole says:

    She’s got one heck of a reasoning there! 🙂

  18. KYouell says:

    I think Laylee is smarter than me. How frightening. Is this a daughter thing or do you think Magoo will be this clever too? Maybe a first child thing?

    The Biscuit already seems to think that he can out-clever me. He understands the power of distraction all too well. “Look at me, I’m trying to pull the blinds down. I’ve made a huge mess. Why don’t you clean that up while I sneak through the gate that you are going to take out of the kitchen doorway because your big pregnant butt can’t get over it anymore?” Ack!

  19. I want me some of that Monster Spray. Are you selling any? Here, I’ll lob you an imaginary check.

  20. RGLHM says:

    I hope MIlly doesn’t get that smart with me. Hard to compete with personal revelation!

  21. papaclint says:

    Sounds like Laylee feels about monsters – the way I feel about Rats! Some things really do just deserve to die!

    That kid has always been smart, but when she pulls out the “Higher Authority card”, you may as well just give up.

  22. grammyelin says:

    Sorry, that last comment was me (not your dad). I forgot to reset the computer.

  23. Now, Laylee is a girl I would love to talk theology with!! That one has a future as a pastor’s wife LOL!! (I am one, btw!)

  24. Sue says:

    That’s a smart kid.. LOL!!!!
