From EG's journal:
Started a history reading last week that discussed the conflicts between the Protestants and Catholics in the 1600’s….I began to read, then said, “oh, do you remember what a Protestant is from last year’s history?” She said, “oh wait, wait, hold on….I think I know…don’t tell me! Is it somebody who grabs another person and sleeps with them?”
Oh, my. A bit unintentionally irreverent and very funny. Had to hold it in on that one and not laugh out loud! I’ve tried to describe to them delicately over time what a prostitute is, since it comes up a lot in our scripture readings. It’s funny, this kind of mix ups with words that are slightly similar in sound is something she’s been doing since she could speak
This grandchild has been articulate since the day she started talking. When most children were just learning to say ball, she was using words like umbrella and belt buckle. She was like a little sponge. She still amazes me with her grasp of things and her imagination.
