every child has the gift of providing innocent insight as he discovers the world around him. i think it's a gift from God - so that parents don't go clinically insane with the stresses of raising a kid. after four years of being amazed -and at times perplexed- by my son Nile's journey through childhood, it's time to write it all down. although i tell myself it would be impossible to forget, i know some day i will cherish being able to read this. and i will still be shaking my head.
Nile: "Mom, I heard that when it's raining it means that Jesus is crying."
So, of course I think, "Awww, my sweet little boy is back".
But before I could even give him a smile, he finishes "So I'm sure that when it is snowing God is puking."
For those wondering what Nile has been up to lately: 1. He's going to college in Mexico - he doesn't care if he has to learn spanish. 2. Don't ask him how preschool is going - it's way too cool for you to understand. 3. He wants to be queen Amidala (from Star Wars) for Halloween - it would be the best costume ever, no one would EVER guess it was a boy.
