Conversation at our house Tuesday night...


I was sorting through old photos to do a project and Savanna came over and assembled a large stack of her baby photos. She was wanting to take them all and do something with them and I told her no. She's not responsible enough yet. I told her I would be keeping them for now because she has a habit of taping or stapling them to things or doodling things on them, and pretty soon they are irrepairably messed up and ...another photo memory bites the dust.

She was sort of upset at me for not granting her permission to take the stack of pictures.

Exasperated she said, "Well, WHEN can I have them?"


" I'll make you some extra copies of a few photos for now but as far as having all the originals, we'll wait until you are responsible to take care of them. Maybe when you are about thirty or forty years old, I'll give them to you to keep."

"Mom, you won't be able to do that," she said, "it's impossible. You just need to give them to me now."

"Why?" I said.

And she answered, (I'm quoting her word for word here...) "These are the days of Elijah!!! Don't you read your Bible? These are the last days, the Lord is coming back, and we won't be around for you to give me the pictures then, so you need to just give them to me now!"

What in the heck was I to say to that?

Go with: Jesus's photo album will be way cooler than this. So either way you win!

Our kids will definately leave us speechless at times - although I love you PD, you are on your own with this one (lol).

The good thing is, she's definately in the WORD, so that's a plus (smile)

LOL! I would have to say she won that arguement! Why not make a girls night event where the two of you put together some scrap booking albums of just her pictures?! Something fun to do and you don't have to go crazy with all the scrap booking material to make some nice albums. That could be a real fun thing for the two of you!
