"KIDS SAY..... "

My four year old returned from school with so much excitement and said, "Mummy, we have a new memory verse for today."

I curiously asked, "Really? Okay, tell me about it."

Then he responded, "Matthew 11:28; Jesus said, come unto me all ye that are weary and a heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

As a godly mother, I was very happy and proud of my son for learning a new Bible verse so I applauded and hugged him.

While he was doing his homework, I noticed after doing a total of 8 pages of various activities in his textbooks, he dropped his pencil and placed his head on the table though he still had two more pages to go.

So I called out, "Boy, let's finish the last one na, why are you dropping your pencil?"

He raised up his head and said,

"Mummy please I am weary and heavy-laden, Jesus said I should come and have some rest!" Then he placed his head back on the table.

I couldn't hold myself as I burst into laughter.

Abeg what's the appropriate response to this statement?

What's the funniest thing a child has said to you?
