Miriam (while handing me some coins from her wallet): "Here, Mom, this is for the carousel ride we went on."

Me: "Oh, thanks honey, but that's okay, I already paid for you."

Miriam (perplexed; then, after a pause): "But, Mom... I thought you said I was priceless?"


  1. That is too cute!

  2. That's adorable! :)

    I have a question for you, Zsuzsanna. How do you handle ugly blog comments? I used to blog more regularly, but grew discouraged with the vitriol that people would leave. I have mostly blogged about recipes and budgeting, and was getting nasty comments regarding our family size! I learned pretty quickly to use comment moderation, but I don't usually know what a comment wil be like until I actually read the email. If you have any tips about that, or maybe I just need to be thicker-skinned?
    thank you for visiting my blog. :) If you find time to answer this, it doesn't matter to me if it is public or private, and I completely understand if you don't have time. :)
    In Christ,

  3. Laura,

    it honestly doesn't usually bother me in the least. Most nasty comments attack the Bible or our beliefs, and I know that I am right and the anonymous haters are wrong.

    The only negative feedback that bothers me and makes me think is the type that contains truth, i.e. pointing out real faults and shortcomings of mine. Those are much more likely to come from people I know personally than from people on the internet whose ultimate problems is with God, not me/us.

    I can usually tell by the first few words where a comment is headed, and simply hit "delete" if I am not interested in reading or publishing it.

    Please do start blogging again, I enjoyed your few posts!

  4. Where do they come up with these little quotes? I swear they need their own cartoon to go with their sayings! Imagine how sad it would be if you had the television full blast and never heard it.
