I'm never sure what to expect when Laci starts a story . They are always very detailed and I am pretty sure half the tome she is improvising along the way gauging my reaction and adjusting as needed.
Last night we were making snowflake ornaments and she started with:
"sometimes when I wake up I feel like my life isn't real"
"what do you mean?"
" like it's a dream ... Or a video game.... And Jesus is playing the video game against the devil.....and with every act of kindness we help Jesus win."
(ellipses denote her slight pauses in which I think she's determining which way to go with this)
Me: " thats pretty deep Laci"
Ella: ( loudly because it's her default volume) " but the devil is dead right?"
Me: " no "
Ella (slightly concerned): " oh I thought he was dead"
Me: " no. But .. Uh.. Jesus always wins against the devil"
Ella: (quietly in a tiny voice and looking out the corner of her eye quizzically)
" is he injured?"
Again Ella causes us all to snort with laughter with her unique view on all things in all situations
