Quotable Kids

Summer is going by all too quickly.  We have been busy, busy, busy.  Currently, we are in Ohio and seem to be going non-stop everyday.  With all the hustle and bustle, blogging has been taking a backseat.  Although, there are a couple conversations lately that have been too good not to share.  Enjoy!

Conversation 1

Me:  Dominic, what is my name?

Dominic:  Mom.

Me:  What is my other name?

Dominic:  Erin

Me:  Good Job!  Now what is my job?  (I was hoping he would say teacher.)

Dominic:  Changing poopy diapers.

Nice, Dominic!! 

Conversation 2

We have been going to Kings Island almost every day while in Ohio.  Today, I took the older ones for some special time.  Our last ride before leaving was the Viking Fury.  It is a Viking Ship that swings.  If you sit in the top row you gain quite some height.  Needless to say, I thought they might be a tad bit afraid.

Me:  Isaac and Clare my arm will be around you, so you do not need to worry about anything or feel too scared.  I am right here.

Isaac:  (Removing my arm from around him)  Mom, you can just take care of yourself.  I'm good!

Oh, my heart!!  When son did you get so big?

Link Reset

If you tried to read this post, and noticed the link did not work.  It is working now.  Guess that's what happens when you blog while nursing a baby!


Just going to throw it out there, but does this article, or rather the letter mentioned in the article, seem a little reminiscent of the Declaration of Independence.  Ironic, that this is issued just two days prior to our celebration of Independence from Britain?!  Not trying to be a conspiracy theorist, but the parallels were too striking to pass up!

In the words of Father Terence Henry, "The age of casual Catholicism is over, the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead be Catholics by conviction. ”
