A couple of Mondays ago Evan and I were driving home from his basketball class. He says: "Mommy what color are my eyes" Me: "Your eyes are brown." Evan: "What color are Daddy's eyes?" Me: "Daddy's eyes are blue." Evan: "What color are Brady's eyes?" Me: "Brady's eyes are blue." Evan: "I want blue eyes." Me: "Well, you have brown eyes like Mommy and Maddox." Evan: "Are they blue under the brown?" Me: "No, they are brown, buddy." Evan: "Why are they brown. I like blue." Me: "That is how GOD made you, Evan. GOD gave you, Maddox, and Mommy brown eyes and Brady and Daddy blue eyes." Evan: "GOD gave me brown eyes?...Okay, that is cool then. I like brown."
I love these little conversations of discovery. I love the one on one time we are able to have...however infrequent or short. I love how okay he was with brown eyes when he understood that GOD gave them to him. I just LOVE him!
