Out of The Mouth of Babes

Alas, the computer hasn't been fixed yet, and I have been taking pictures of the cherub cheeks all day in anticipation.

But as we were putting Mr. Handsome Pants down for bed tonight, we had a very interesting conversation that touched me deeply. Keep in mind, The Boss has had a very difficult day due to the fact he woke up from his nap 1.5 hours early.

My Love told him the story of Samuel the Lamanite and afterward we talked about how we are protected when we do what is right. We as his parents we want him to be safe and grow up healthy and happy, just like he has a Father in Heaven who wants the same things for him. I then asked The Boss if he remembers his Heavenly Father (because he was so recently with Him) and he said "Yes." I asked him what He was like and The Boss said "Good."

He then got distracted by his glowing duck night light, and started oohing and aahing over that. Regardless, I was impressed, and a little bit humbled by the innocense and purity of my precious son.
