Bethism #10

Beth is a Sunbeam. She's three, and it's January, and that means that at church she graduated from the nursery into the Sunbeam class in Primary. And she is so, so proud of herself.

The chorister was trying to teach the little kiddos a new song today, one about heaven, and she asked them all, "Where do we come from? Where did we live before we were born?"

No response. I think some of the kids had their fingers in their mouths. So she tried again.

"Where did we live before we came here?"

Beth perked up. "Oh!" she said. "Pittsburgh!"

Every adult in the room cracked up.

It's a valid response. Heaven...Pittsburgh...I think her memories of both are equally hazy.

That's so sweet:)

I wouldn't call Pittsburgh heaven lol but that all depends on what time of year it is and if the Steelers won:)

too good. dawson's only remark was when the teacher asked him who heavenly father was and he told her his christmas list.

Such a cute response! Very truthful. As we get a bit older we really start marking time by our children's advancements, not our own as much. Congrats on this new level. :)

At least she remembers Pgh. That is pretty good for a 3 year old.
