My little creationist

Z and I do quite a bit of talking during the 3/4 mile stroller ride to preschool. She picks the topics. Today she said "God made the world, right Mommy?"

"Right." Hey, I'm not about to try to explain the Big Bang theory to a two-year-old.

"Did God make words?"

"Words, like talking words?"


"Well, God made people and people talk words, so I suppose He helped."

"Does God make houses?"

"No, people build houses. But God made the materials like wood, stone and sand."

"And little children can help build houses, right mommy?"

"No, grown-ups build houses."

"But little children can build Little People houses!"

"You're right about that."
