Last night, Honey Bunches made his First Reconciliation. It was a lovely celebration - Yes, I repeat, CELEBRATION. The concept of confession is often a difficult one for many - both Catholics and non-Catholics alike. I won't go into the Theology of the Sacrament today, but it is a beautiful, healing, and loving experience, made possible through Jesus Christ who is our spiritual physician. After receiving the sacrament, I asked Honey Bunches how he felt. He said, "I feel closer to Jesus." True words of wisdom from a child.
We have also begun our Valentine Day countdown. Once again, I took this idea from CatholicIcing, but altered it a little. Here is the result:
Lastly, here are a few kid-isms from the past couple of days.
Monkey Toes: Cucumber, do you want to come with me to get my hair cut?
Cucumber: Um, dad? Why are you going to get a haircut when you're bald on the top?
Monkey Toes left his belt on the changing table and Pumpkin asked, "Daddy left his seat belt here!"
Pumpkin has a rug burn by her eye that she keeps scratching. Sweet Pea told her, "Pumpkin if you don't stop scratching it will blood and then you'll have a scarf." Translation - if you don't stop scratching it will bleed and you'll have a scar.
I wake the kids up for school in the morning, and the boys usually get a bit irritated by my joyfulness so early in the day. Friday morning I flipped the lights on and said, "Goooooooood Friday morning!" Honey Bunches replied, "I think I like good Friday night a whole lot better."
