"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

Oh What a World It Would Be!!

This morning I mentioned to Inigo that I had a nightmare last night and it scared me enough that I woke myself up with a sharp intake of breath. (Are you surprised that the nightmare involved a big black wolf?)

Without missing a beat, without being overly concerned or dramatic and in a very matter-of-fact voice (hand gestures included) Inigo offered me some sound advice:

"Mom, when I wake up like that from a nightmare, I just think of a world made out of chocolate and candy and I can go right back to sleep."

Ummmm......whose child is he?

Definitely sounds like my kind of world ; )

He is such a character.

And, no, I'm not surprised AT ALL that the nightmare would involve a big black wolf.

I bet that has saved you many nights of being awakened when he's had a bad dream! Who couldn't go right back to sleep with a world of chocolate and candy? What a cute kid!


But this is the kid that hates candy!
