Where is God?

I hope none of you clicked on that title expecting a very spiritual or philosophical post, because it’s not.  Just some more funnies I want to record…


My mom is visiting this week.  She watched Anja on Monday while we were at work.  At one point, she heard Anja saying, “Where is God?  Where is God?” and wandering around the house looking.  Finally, spotting her Bible, she said happily, “There He is!”

We may have to have a talk about our Bible becoming an idol earlier than I thought… 🙂


Mom took us all out to eat tonight at Wildfire Restaurant (Yummy food, great service…I had the Chopped Salad and part of a walleye sandwich, Husband had some really good braised short ribs, and Mom got a burger with a gluten-free bun; all were delicious!).  After the meal we were waiting for the bill and Anja started to get restless, so Husband took her outside.  As soon as they walked outside, Anja declared, “It’s nice out!”


Lastly, a question. Why is it that pooping is a recreational sport for men?  Most women I know go into a bathroom, do their duty, wash up and are done.  Men, on the other hand, will go into a bathroom, 6 days’ worth of reading material in hand, and exit in a cloud of steam 45 minutes later looking very pleased with themself.  What is up with that?

  1. Anja is so sweet. It’s good to know she’s already searching for God.

    On the last point? Yes. Don’t their bums go numb? The only way I want to linger in the bathroom is if a hot tub of water is involved.

  2. You guys crack me up.

    My husband calls it “personal time”. I don’t get it. Maybe that’s the only place he can be alone for more than 30 seconds…we do have five kids.

    Anja statements are so cute! I think it’s wonderful that she knows to look for God in the Bible. You guys must be doing something right!

  3. That’s hilarious! I was just having the same conversation with my sister last weekend. We were making fun of our husbands spending FOREVER in the bathroom. I think it is a personal time thing. Personally I like to sit on something soft and comfortable when I read.
    Loved the comments by Anja!

  4. Well, of ALL the things you learned about boys when you married one, did you think that you would learn that one?

    Have you seen Ben write his name in the snow yet?

    We live in Los Angeles, and there’s no snow here. Doing it in asphalt is possible, but takes a lot more effort (and requires a little ingestion of a low grade acid). Jen is proud.

    Anja does say the darndest things though!
