Things Heard in the Backseat

While driving Cody and his little six year-old friend to Awana tonight, I overheard this conversation:  (Please don't think I'm a horrible mother.  I really do spend lots of time teaching my children the bible and it's unbelievable to me how they come up with these conclusions.)

Cody:  Did you know that nobody really knows what kind of fruit Adam and Eve ate off the tree?  
Me:  Everyone just assumes it was an apple.
D:  Maybe it was a pear or a plum!
Me:  All we know is that God said not to eat from it.
Cody:  Yeah!  Because if you eat from the tree of knowledge, God will make you a naked sinner!!!

Cody:  I'm gonna tell you a story of when my mom was a little girl.  It was the eighties.  So I'll tell you the short ending.  Okay, my mom says that when she was little, and my Nanna asked her to do something, she did it RIGHT AWAY and didn't argue or ANYTHING!  And then one time, when my Nanna said, "Jump," my mom would ask, "How high???"  Isn't that amazing?

Fun-ny! Ah, out of the mouths of babes. What would we do without these doses of humor in our lives from day to day?

BTW, exactly how high DID you jump for Mom? I must have been away from home that day.
