"Yesssssss" I said more like a question than a statement, afraid to admit to my four year old that I (gasp) took the milk.
"And you didn't bring it back?!?" To which I just shook my head.
"Why'd you do that? You silly goose!" In contrast to his first statement this one came out at super speed in a voice that said I'm cute, then quickly added "You're off the team!"
This was the first time he'd ever said something like that before.
Then within a minute or two (after I'd stopped laughing at the cuteness of it all) he said "Just kidding Mom, you can still be on the team" and he let me kiss his adorable smiling cheek.
He must have picked it up from daycare yesterday because I was "off the team" two more times as the night went on.
This morning on the way to daycare we were discussing his hurt finger and I told him when we got to Kristy's I wanted to put a new band-aid on it for him. Here is the rest of our conversation.
"Mom, why don't you just drop me off and let Kristy do it after you leave?"
"I thought you'd want me to do it, since I know how much it hurts, and I'm your mom so I can be extra careful."
"No, it will hurt mom. I want Kristy to do it."
"But I'm your mom, I would like to do that for you." I often remind him several times that I'm his mother, just in case he doesn't know, or he forgets. ;)
"Well, mom. Did you know Kristy is part of our family too?"
"Yeah, because she watches us when you and daddy go to work, so she's part of our family."
"Oh, did Kristy tell you that or is that how you feel in your heart?" I ask, just in case he's being brainwashed ;)
"No, she didn't tell me that, it's just how I feel in my heart mom."

I pray that he'll grow up loving the Lord and desiring to do service for Him in whichever position the Lord would call him to and that he'll always desire to be on "God's Team!!!!!"
