Early this morning we had a doosie of a thunderstorm. The kind of thunderstorm that wakes you straight up in your sleep- it felt like the sky was cracking. I was quite surprised that the kids did not wake up during the night prematurely. Quinn said he woke up for a short time but went to sleep again.
When Kye woke up I asked him, "Did you hear the thunder?"
He said, "My ears don't work when I am sleeping, but they do work when I am awake."
I said, "So you did not hear the thunder, huh?"
He said, "No, but Mom, why is thunder white? I explained that was not thunder but lightning. Alea piped in, "Kye did you know that thunder sounds like God bowling?"
I commented, "Well then God got a strike last night- it was loud!"
Kye said, "Yeah, God is a good bowler- he is like the oldest person ever!"
Not much to add to that.
