Bedtime Conversation

The Girls: What does “how-would-it-be” mean?

Me: “How-would-it-be?” Use it for me in a sentence.

Girls: “Our Father, who art in heaven, ‘how-would-it-be’ thy name…”

Me: Ah. That’s not “how-would-it-be”. That’s “hallowed be.”

Girls: What does “hallowed” mean?

Me: Sacred.

Girls: What does “sacred” mean?

Me: Holy.

Girls: What does “holy” mean?

Me: Extra super duper special, like an angel.

Girls: Special like having your name in a rap song?… Yo, yo, yo…

Me: At least as special as that.

For clarification, my children don’t actually listen to rap music. It would not be unheard of, however, for Rainbow to pretend to be a character by the name of “Yo Yo Diggy Dog.”

    That’s great. You just can’t make up stuff like that.

    Too funny. Hallowed = super-special enough to be mentioned in a rap song. Word.
