This sweet little toothless 5 year old girl
comes up with the funniest things
like when we do experiments, she calls them "experiences"
When daddy goes fishing,
she asks "How many feet did the fish have?"
She will tell her side of a story and then get in trouble
(time out for lying)
and then cry, "I want to tell you the truth"
over and over...
I'll say "I know the truth."
She will then say,
"NO! I want to tell you the other truth!"
We've been trying to pray the rosary mid morning each day
(we are not doing so hot this week)
When I announce the mysteries,
I like to quiz the kiddos on some things,
when we got to the Visitation,
when Mary visits Elizabeth,
I asked (everyone),
"Who was in Elizabeth's womb?"
She blurted out
"St John...The Bosco!"
(he's one of our favorite saints)
the answer was St John the Baptist!
Yesterday, we went through the Stations of the Cross
and when we got to the 12th station
The death of our Lord on the Cross
She really studied the picture...
We then, moved onto the 13th Station,
Jesus is taken down from the Cross and laid in the arms of His Mother.
She looked again, very seriously at the picture and then said,
"Why didn't they just take Jesus down before He died?"
Well, it sure opens up the conversations on why He chose to die in this way
(for us, He took on the weight of the world, for us!)
I just hope she remembers it.
I love doing the stations with the kids,
they are so loving and caring.
Sweetie Pie is always looking at the pictures
and saying, "Oh, poor Jesus" "Oooh"
