At Christmas Kennedy loved to sing “Santa Clause is Coming to Town”. However, she came up with new lyrics to it. She had seen some kids smoking and asked us about it, so we talked to her about it. Daddy even told her it would turn her lungs all black. So she started to sing, “You better watch out, You better not SMOKE, You better not pout, I’m telling you why:. Santa Claus is coming to town!” We thought it was so funny! A little history for you….THEN
Yesterday I was at the base commissary buying some groceries. We have Brian’s parents here for the week. Anyways, she was being quite the missionary singing all her children’s hymns and preaching sermons. She tells me everyday she wants to be a baby nurse like me, and a missionary too! So, she is just singing away and as we stroll down the isle, we come to an African American couple. Kennedy’s eyes got really big and she exclaimed. “Mommy, they must smoke a whole lot because they’re ALL black!” I turned a million shades of red. I think the couple understood that kids say the funniest things. I said a quick Hi, excuse us and then darted onto the next aisle as fast as possible. After, we had a chat about how we all are different. Kids say the funniest things!
