Kindergartner Kidneys

     We had been home schooling our kindergartner, Katie, for three months when one day at lunch my husband broke out into song, singing, “Bless the Lord, oh my soul, and all that is within me . . .” He turned to Katie, who seemed to be ignoring him, and said, “I can bless God with my heart, my lungs, my stomach, and my kidneys.” All of a sudden, Katie perked up and said, “Daddy, I have kidneys!” Shocked at how quickly our prodigy was picking up anatomy he beamed and said, “Katie, do you know how many kidneys you have?” “Sure,” she replied, “I have two.” Jim was beside himself with pleasure. He asked, “Do you know where your kidneys are?” She smiled real big, drew her legs up on her chair, and pointed to her little knees. “Right here. I have two kid- knees and you have two daddy-knees!”
—James & Stella Goedderz, Boca Raton, FL
