Kids Say the Darndest Things

We all know that kids are a hoot. They say the funniest things and are so completely honest. Here's a great thing I just heard about one of my step-sisters.

I was in the kitchen getting lunch today and I made a comment to my dad and step-mom, and I spelled a word rather than saying it. My step-mom replied, "God can spell." I looked at her and said, "What?" She explained that while visiting her daughters this weekend, her middle daughter remarked, after she heard someone spell a curse word, "God can spell." I found this so hilarious; I sat down and had the best laugh. I hear adults do that all of the time. We spell words we don't want kids to hear, but then they get old enough and can understand what we say. Sometimes I catch myself occasionally spelling a curse word when I feel the urge to say one but would feel bad for actually saying it. But as my step-sister would say, "God can spell."
