The best compliment ever

Sunday, almost a week ago, two girls were playing with Fiala after church.  Sweet girls, both of them, one of whom I’ve known since she was born, the other since she was three.  One is now 12, the other 11.

They both asked me, “We want to know if you’re going to have any more babies.”

I replied, “Wellllll…  We’re not planning on it, but you never know what’s in God’s plans.  I’d have six or seven kids if I wasn’t so old!”

They replied, in unison, “You’re not old!”


I’m 36.  I remember being a kid and thinking that anyone over the age of 17 or so was positively ancient.  So, I guess they think I’m 17.  😉


About Karen Joy

I'm a partially-homeschooling mother of six -- 3 boys ages 19, 17 and 15 years old, and three girls: 11, 8, and 3. I like birding, reading, writing, organic gardening, singing, playing guitar, hiking, the outdoors, and books. I very casually lead a very large group of homeschooling families in the Phoenix area. I have a dear hubby who designs homes for a local home builder and who is the worship pastor of our church. I live in the desert, which I used to hate, but now appreciate.
