Pink People of the World!

Yesterday I was changing Alethia's diaper and began singing 'Jesus Loves Me'. She loves that song and sings it on her own even though Chris and I have only sung it to her a handful of times. She said she wanted a new song and so I wracked my brain trying to recall a short, sweet children's song about Jesus. And then it popped into my head:

Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white.........

"Waaaiiiit, Mommy!!! Pink and blue, pink and blue chi-din!!!"

Oh yes, my socialized little darling, EVERYTHING comes in pink and for her and one for Caleb. How could I forget the pink and blue children of the world! So we quickly revised the song with new lyrics:

Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.
Red and yellow, pink and blue,
they are precious so are you!
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Yes, that brought a huge smile to our little girls face, NOW the song was perfect!

About 15 minutes later the kids and I were headed out the door to run some errands. Caleb wanted to sing our new song by himself and so he began. Mid-way through the song Alethia looked at Caleb with a huge smile and said,

"Wow Caleb! You good singer! You good singer, Caleb!"

Aaaaahhhh, there really is nothing like having twins! They're so sweet and cute!! I've renamed this period of life to be their Triumphant Two's.......oh yes, we will triumph!!!


  1. I love your stories!! They sound like they are so loving and encouraging to one another. And I think your song lyrics are way cooler than the original Jesus Loves the Little Children! =)

  2. ...i also like to call them 'trainable two's'. ;)
