I wont get into what led to this conversation but thought many of you might like the insight of a 10 year old little boy who has just learned that there is no Easter bunny
Setting the scene, my ten year old son is in the kitchen washing dishes...which is where I do quite a bit of thinking myself. We had had the conversation about an hour earlier.
Devon: "So mom all the parents in the world who have said that there was an Easter Bunny lied?"
Me: Ashamed at myself for being one of them says...."yes honey we all lied"
Devon: "well parents most of all should know that even a white lie is sin...it may seem harmless, but it is still a lie"
I walked away from that conversation with a new insight as to what a child may think. Devon, even knowing that these things were "fun" for kids, realized that all parents are lieing about it. I make no claims here...just thought I would pass along something I thought was profound.
