The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water


Sunday was a lazy day. It was raining for what seemed like the tenth day in a row.

We came home from church and brunch. The girls had their baths and we put them to bed.

Mom and Dad have been good. I guess they deserve some quiet time.

Mom and Dad have been good. I guess they deserve some quiet time.

With the To-Do lists majorly caught up, Mom and I decided to take a break. We found a movie, among all the quietness, and Mom helped herself to a glass of wine and some slices of cheese to go with our Sunday Matinée.

For ‘medicinal’ purposes

At the end of our brief hiatus from reality Skylar comes down from her nap and sits on Mom’s lap, laying her little head on Mom’s shoulder. After a few minutes a sleepy Skylar sits up and squints her eyes at Mom, barely opening them enough to let the light in and says,

“Mom, you smell like the blood of Jesus”

Mom and I looked at each other and smiled. Maybe Mom communed too much?

Peace be with you Skylar!



How do you know what ‘the blood of Jesus’ smells like anyway?

  1. Yes she is coming into her own here. Its a shame Dylan is out growing it. She always had such cute, innocent perceptions. Skylar is good on the ‘cute’ part, ‘innocent’ not so much. I hope your girls are doing good John. Have a great week!

    Good one Skylar! Maybe she’s just trying to catch up to Dylan on the “saying list.”

  3. Oh, it appears she knows the smell of wine now! ..right down to the grape! She was too funny.. the funny thing is she rarely is with us when we take communion. But yes, we will watch her consumption of the blood of Jesus when she gets older and always be able to hold this one over her head. Thanks for dropping by FPWing! Always great to hear from you!

  4. Cute! This is a funny story. She’ll enjoy hearing it when she is older and knows the smell of wine.

  5. We do have some great ones I would hate to lose. I remember several years ago WP had a function on how to turn your blog posts into a book. I think I may want to do that at sometime or else I would have to maintain this blog for 10+ years to when the girls may be able to appreciate their cuteness and / or hold it over their heads as teenagers. I hope you are doing great Cassye! Always great to hear from you!

  6. I thought it was too cute not to share too Diana. We shared the look of ‘where does she get this from?’ My oldest is kinda growing out of these impulsive remarks but Skye is blossoming into them nicely right now. As always, thanks for dropping by Diana! Have a great week…

  7. Hysterical. It’s a good thing you’re getting all these down. They will be a collective treasure trove one day!

  8. Haha! That’s hilarious Andy! You should submit this to Life’s Like That in Reader’s Digest, if Reader’s Digest still exists, does it?

I would love to hear from you...
