My own personal Buddha

I think I live with a mini-Buddha. Here’s a snippet of a conversation I had with my 3 year old daughter.

3 year old: Well, some people do and some people don’t.

Me: Wow, that applies to so much of life.

3 year old, turning toward me with a sage look: Yes. To so many lives.

Wonder if it’d be lucky for me to rub her belly…

    Your Buddha sounds suspiciously like Eeyore. I believe that particular quote comes from “Pooh and Piglet Lead an Expotition.” Or maybe “Eeyore Has a Birthday.”

    Now I’ll be in trouble from the Buddhists, for suggesting that a donkey can have a Buddha-nature…

    Probably not lucky, but baby bellies feel so nice! Although S. might be growing out of hers so quick you’d better rub it before it’s gone.

    And trouble from her father (me) for daring to suggest that her comments were merely quotations, not original! 🙂

    Great point!

    I’m still hoping she’ll grow out of asking me to wipe her butt though… 😉
