Funny Flanna Quotes
"Mom, can I get out of bed for a minute? Because I just HAVE to dance to this song."
Flanna: "Mom, was I white when I was born?"
Me: "You mean your skin?"
Me: "Yes, you've always had white skin."
Flanna: "Then why didn't you name me blanco?"
Dancing to the Tangled soundtrack:
"This is my pony dance. It's a dance for slow and beautiful songs."
Cuddling before bedtime:
Flanna: How do we know there are gold streets in heaven?
Me: Well, we don't really know for sure. We just take our ideas of it from the people who wrote the Bible.
Flanna: But how do they know? Did they die and go to heaven and come back?
Me: No, I don't think so. I think God just told them.
Flanna: How did He tell them?
Me: Sometimes God talks to people. Do you ever hear God talk to you?
Flanna: No. He just listens to me.
Me: He listens when you pray, yeah.
Flanna: And He listens when I make a wish.
Me: Oh, that too, yeah.
Flanna: (whispering) But one time, I wished for a unicorn. And God didn't give it to me.
Me: Oh, you wanted a unicorn?
Flanna: Yeah, to ride to school on. So you wouldn't have to walk me. I could just go by myself, and then it could ride back with me after school and I could be home when you get home.
Me: Wow, that would be neat. Well, maybe God won't give you a unicorn now, but maybe it will be waiting for you up in heaven with your mansion.
Flanna: Yeah, but it would be fun to ride it to school now.
(That last conversation just happened as I put Flannery to bed. Otherwise, I never would've remembered the whole thing. That kid is such a thinker. I just love her.)
