Claire came to mass with me this morning, probably just to get out of school. I asked her what she was going to give up for Lent, suggested candy, but she laughed and said, "Hell no." (She probably needs to give up swearing.) Anyway, she told me she was going to give up surprises, whatever that means. She's 3 so I just said okay. She asked me what I was going to give up for Lent and when I said wine, she laughed again.
She did okay at church, just talked the whole time. It was a different crowd so it was more noticeable. You know only the hard-core (miserable) Catholics go to weekday masses. Then when we left she said, "Mom, that was SO much FUN," while climbing all up on the Mary statue in the parking lot. Seriously?
I asked her to take a picture in the car so we could send her dad.
