Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

God, according to Chloe

This just in from one of the moms at The Episcopal Church of St. Paul:

Chloe, Ellie, Johanna, Michael & respective moms attended one of Montclair Art Museum's great kids' programs today. The theme was Native American art, and the project was to make a "singing doll" out of clay.

As you can imagine, the kids' sculpting was heartily encouraged even if their character-stuffed dolls (pets, rocks, snowmen etc...) strayed a bit from the assignment at hand. (They're going to make awesome father's day presents!)

Fast forward to bedtime, when Chloe punctuated the silence after a lovely quiet chat in the dark with:

"Mommy? We are, kind of, sculptures that God made."

*Shiver, sigh*

I can't think of a better way to start my day.
