I found this article quite validating. When I was in kindergarten, we went on a field trip to the circus. I remember seeing a clown close up and found him quite disturbing and grotesque. I asked my teacher if he would be that way forever. She said yes. I don't know if she misunderstood the question, or if she wanted to keep the fantasy alive, but she said yes. I cried for a long time after that about that poor poor man.

Also, my cousin had broken her leg, and I was under the impression that she would never walk again. It broke my little child heart.

I'm sure I have given my children misconceptions too. KJ was told by one of his Sunday School instructors that Heaven would be sitting in a chair, thinking about God, forever. Imagine telling an active little boy that he will sit in a chair forever, and that it's supposed to be good. We need to be so careful what we say or how we impress the little ones.

Oh yeah! I forgot to mention. I GOT A PART TIME JOB!!!! Transcription to help finance nursing. Seems fair to me.

RYC: yeah that is what we are thinking they are. They ordered an MRI and EEG, but if they are those types i doubt that they will pick them up. Not sure though. Thats awesome, about the nursing school... what level are you in?

Yay! Thanks so much. I'm just so excited I finally got a comment :) Haha. The rice thing is awesome. I'm almost up to 10,000 grains. Now, I don't know how many grains of rice are in an average bowl...must find that out next.
