we're not exactly regular church-goers. i'm a bit of reluctant catholic. but that good ol' catholic guilt always makes an appearance around the holidays and i feel a need to suddenly drag everyone off to church.
so i start making arbitrary we're going to go to church announcements. sometimes weeks in advance. sometimes days. sometimes i just spring it on the kids on the actual day of the most holy holiday of the year just as they dig into their baskets.
my husband says i should work on my timing.
so annabel goes downstairs and announces to lulu
mom says we're going to church.
to which lulu responds
what! that's gonna ruin the whole day!
and then annabel says
lulu! it's a big day. it's the day jesus rose from the dead.
and lulu says
well, it's not like he's a zombie or anything.
we never did make it to church. instead, we planted some seeds, picked up some poop from the backyard, went for a bike ride and had some friends over for a beer and the tour of flanders.
i’ll be going to hell in a handbasket someday. i hope my husband takes the kids to church.
See you in hell ;D
I have always loved your post. Wish you would do it more often!! Please....pretty please ;)))
