This particular book she wanted has a lot of magic in it. I'm not anti-magic. But I wanted her to know there are people who use the concept of magic to do things that directly oppose God. This was her reply,
"Momma, the book I wanted doesn't have that kind of magic, it only has magic about traveling to different times and solving mysteries. Times like the 1980's!"
I couldn't further discuss with her because my mind couldn't wrap itself around anything more than my daughter truly believes the 1980's are sooooooo in the past. Just one step after dinosaurs and one step before pyramids. The 1980's. The cradle of my elementary years has just been thrown into the archives of distant history with the fall of the Roman Empire and Custer's Last Stand.
How'd I get to be a grown up so fast???!!!!!!
