Conversation between Grant & I:
Grant: Mom, when do we get to go to the Zoo again?
Mom: Love, we don't have money for that right now.
Grant: But I have lots of money in my piggy bank. (maybe $2 in change)
Mom: You know that your money goes into the bank to save up for college, a mission & a nice engagement ring.
Grant: What's an engagement ring?
Mom: After your mission, you will meet a nice girl who has also served a mission, that wants to have at least 5 kids, & that mommy & daddy really like. You'll ask her to marry you, & give her a pretty ring. See, this is the one Daddy gave me.
Grant runs away real quick, when he comes back.....
Grant: But I already have one of those. See look, mine is bigger!
I hope you meet a girl that will accept that sweetie.
Grant: Mom, will you tell me what to say?
Mom: Just tell Heavenly Father what you're thankful for.
Grant: I'm thankful for my friends, my blanket, my pillow, my books, the stars & boats but I don't think they're stickers, they won't come off, I tried & tried, I think they might be paint, but I'm not sure......
This was his view. Please don't judge the dirty wall.
While in the car.
Mom: Come on guys. I know you can buckle up faster than this
Grant: Why do we have to always buckle up?
Mom: To keep you safe just in case there is an accident. And it is the law. We try to always follow the law.
Grant: If we don't, will the police come get us?
Mom: No, they will get Mommy for not keeping you safe.
Grant: Will they take you to jail?
Mom: If I'm not a good girl, yes.
Nathan: If the police take you to jail, I will kill all the bad guys so they'll let you out.
You have to imagine Nate with his aggressiveness & shooting at the same time. Such a sweetie to kill all the bad guys to break me free.
