WHERE are we? Alternately titled, "Have I possibly been reading too many Christmas stories lately?"

A few days ago, as we were on our way home from the store, Cameron informed me that we were "lost."

"We're going the wrong way, Mommy!" he said.

"No we're not Cameron. This is the way back home." I replied back to him.

"No it's not, Mommy."


Now, to be fair, many times when we come home from Wal-Mart, we do go a different way. But, I had a couple of other stops to make and tragically for me no ice cream in my bags, so we were going to go through town to get home instead of our back woods route.

I tried to assure him.

"Cameron, in just a couple of minutes, you'll recognize where we are. I promise."

So, we continued driving. We passed a lot of things that I knew he recognized, but for some reason, he still kept saying that he didn't know where he was.

He seemed genuinely confused at the time.

{I'm pretty sure now that he was just messing with me.}

We continued driving, and we were coming up to a place that I knew for sure that he would recognize.

'Old' McDonalds.

There is a giant one with a playland that we pass every time we go home. And, every time we go home, the kids ask if we can stop. I knew he would know where we were when he saw it.

Sure enough.

'Old' McDonalds came into view, and Cameron instantly piped up.

"NOW I know where we are!" he shouted.

"See!" I said. "I told you we were going the right way! I told you you would know where you were in just a minute!"

"Yeah!" he replied. "I sure do know now.....we're in Bethlehem!!"

The other day Puckey was telling Jib that Jesus lived in her heart because he was very tiny. LOL
