Folding clothes last night...
Declan: “I respect my clothes. My clothes are awesome.”
Aimee: “Um, that’s good.”
Declan: “No, really. I respect my clothes. I respect God, and he respects clothes, so I respect them too.”
[OK. Hold up. Those of you who know us, know we are agnostic at best. We believe in a higher power, but not any one religion. And Declan has been randomly mentioning God and Jesus lately. Out of the blue. Like how the other day, he wished he could bring his PopPop, Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesus back from the dead. I told him he had to BE Jesus to do that.]
Aimee: “So, buddy. You have been talking about God a lot lately. Where have you been hearing about him?” [Wondering if his summer camp is having Jesus Week or something.]
Declan: [Looking at me with the most serious, earnest face ever] “The Oriental Trading Company catalog.”
Aimee: “I’m sorry, did you say… the Oriental Trading Company catalog???“
Declan: “Yes! They have a whole section on God. They had a sign post pointing one way to God inside a heart. And a beachball with God on it. And! And!…”
I had to leave the room because I was laughing so hard.
And I am going to hell.
