Attachment Theology

03 December 2013

The kids are fascinated with the nativity scene in the hospital lobby. Sebastian assumes the "sheeps" are for riding and that every single statue wants a face grab complete with a kiss on the lips.


But today something clicked and all of my suspicions that I've been doing pretty much everything in the old parenting books right, righter, and rightest were confirmed when Julia, after studying the wise men for a long time, confidently stated, "oh! the mans are bringing bottles of formula for baby Jesus to Aunt Mary."


Yep.

  4. LOL. I think Miriam has those same boots or similar ones. That's all she wears. Mostly b/c her alternative would be going barefoot in 20 degree weather.

  20. LOVE it, they were WISE men right? They brought practical expensive gifts instead of frivolous expensive gifts. Might I be a heretic and suggest some other less practical man edited that part of the story to give it more pizzaz? Figures. Sounds like she's pretty astute!

  21. Glad to know I'm not the only solid catechizer (is that even a word?)

  22. I thought Sebastian was a part of the Nativity scene! He's the right height!

    Also, how does Aunt Mary feel about being compared to the Blessed Mother? I would feel pretty cool!

  25. Ellen calls a crucifix a crossy-feets. Also, I will never be able to get that image of J playing ring-around-the-rosie with the broken crucifix out of my head. hilarious.
