Thank heavens for baby monitors

Joey and Tommy share a room and we still have a baby monitor in it to hear if Tommy has to go potty, or to listen for any horsing around after they are put to bed. The following is another reason we are thankful we have left the monitor up for so long.
Conversation overheard last night:

Joey: Ya know, Tommy, Jesus' mother was Mary.
Tommy: Uh-huh.
Joey: And Jesus' daddy was Joseph.
Tommy: Uh-huh
Joey: My name is Joseph. I wonder if I am Jesus' daddy.
Tommy: Nooo!
Joey: No. Ya know, Tommy, I am so thankful to Jesus.
Tommy: I'm thankful to Jesus too.
Joey: Yeah.
Joey: Goodnight, Jesus!
Tommy: I love you, Jesus!

Ahh. Be still my heart!

my daughter had a friend named Joseph (who has since moved away) but she would always say "Like Jesus' Daddy!" (side note: Joseph's mommy got pregnant with a girl and really liked the name "mary" but knew that that would just be mean to her children!)

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
