Where Does Satan Live?

Caleb (playing with some toy that apparently was Satan, yeah, I know, I wasn't paying very much attention)
Josh: "Caleb, we don't like Satan."
Caleb: "Yes we do."
Josh: "No, Caleb, he is really bad."
Caleb: "No he isn't....why don't we like him, Mama?"
Me: "Well, he doesn't like it when we are happy, he wants us to be sad and make bad choices."
Caleb: "Oh, so he is bad."
Me: "Yeah, he wants us not to live with Heavenly Father."
Caleb: "Oh, so he wants us to live with him?"
Me: "Um, something like that."
Josh: "Well, where does he live?"
Me: (Thinking a second, because why shouldn't I tell him?)  "He lives in a place called hell."
Josh: "Hell?  Hm.  Weird."

Luckily, I haven't had either of them repeat that since, but I have a feeling any day they are going to be talking about going to hell or that someone is going to go there.  And I'm also pretty sure it will be in a public setting and I am going to really regret teaching them that word.  :)


  1. Oh, the wheels are turning! I can´t wait to see what Caleb comes up with next!

  2. Oh, the joys that await you! Keep records of these conversations. My daughter has, and if I am ever blue I just go to her blog and remember when Jake or Camden said something totally wonderful. Like telling everyone in the library that his mommy didn't have a penis, but that was OK, cause that's how Heavenly Father wanted it. I bet Stephanie can tell amazing stories!
