I gave the girls baths tonight before tucking them into bed. While I was combing Eloise's wet hair, Evie asked me, "Are you always thinking about something?"
Have you been reading my blog? I thought, remembering this recent post. But instead I said, "What do you mean, honey?"
"Do you always think?"
"Well, I think so. Do you mean, do I always have some ideas or people or something going on in my head?"
"Yep. I do! I really do. Do you?"
"Yeah. And I don't like it."
"You don't like it? Why not?"
"Well, sometimes there's just so much stuff up there, it kind of hurts."
"Hmmm. Like, you'd kind of like your head to just be empty for a while? With no thoughts?"
"Yeah. I have too many thoughts, and my head starts to feel heavy."
"Well, Babe, when your head starts to feel too heavy, ask God to take away some of those thoughts. He will. He really will." Then I wonder, And why don't I remember my own advice about this sometimes?!?
Maybe her head was too heavy when she took this picture of herself...
