I have started Bear in Awana. Kind of. We are doing it long distance right now until we get up to the Island. So his leader, our beloved Gephry sent us his Cubbie motto last week and sent us his first verse this week. I read it to him. And then I asked him to say it with me as I said a little bit at a time. I John 4:10 God loved us and sent his son. This opened a whole can of worms that I am not sure how to explain to a three year old. And showed me that I am slipping a little bit.
"Mommy? Who is Gods son?"
"Jesus is his son."
"Oh.... Well if God is the daddy and Jesus is the son, who is the mommy?"
"There is no mommy honey."
"There is no mommy in Heaven? How was Jesus born? Daddys can't have babies."
I changed the subject at this point. I could have explained how he had a mommy on earth, and Mary and Joseph and the Trinity, but I think it might have confused him even more.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
And then a few minutes later he starts singing very quietly:
"Everybody wants to go to Kevin, but nobody wants to go now."
"What are you singing? Can you sing that a little louder for me?"
"Everybody wants to go to Kevin, but nobody wants to go now!"
"Um, I think it might be Heaven everybody wants to go to."
"No, it is Kevin. I heard it in a song. Everybody wants to go to Kevin."
"Where is Kevin?"
"I don't know. It might be near Heaven."
