Aaron and I were putting the boys to bed last night and talking about one of our favorite subjects: Liberia. One Body, One Hope has a big trip planned for November of this year, and we're contemplating bringing the whole family along. Why not? The biggest deterrent for our kids is the number of immunizations they'll have to endure before going to this third world country. Hepatitis A and B, PPSV (for meningitis), and yellow fever, plus anti-malarial meds for while we're there... Hmmm. Sounds like a lot, doesn't it? Anyway, we were snuggled in bed, chatting. Here's an excerpt of our conversation. I'm still laughing...

Big Boy: When is the trip to Liberia?

Aaron: In ten months. A long time from now. Do you want to go?

Big Boy: I don't know...

Little Guy: If I get two shots I can go to My-beria (he can't say his L's yet) for two days. If I get three shots I can go to My-beria for three days.

Big Boy: That's not true.

Aaron: Well, kind of. But we'll stay for about two weeks... And there will be a few more shots.

Little Guy: Uh-huh. And if you get two shots you can go to Your-beria for two days. If you get three shots you can to to Your-beria for three days!

Sorry, that had nothing to do with answering your questions, but it tickled my funny bone. Had to share! Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. That is hilariously adorable. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face!

  2. Aww. That's cute! Reminds me of some quotable quotes from my little siblings (I actually have a notepad file full of them...quotes, not siblings.) "Let's play sleeping beauty. I'm sleeping, you're beauty."

  3. So precious! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I'm sleeping, you're beauty... I love it! Kids are too funny. :)
