The first weekend of May marked Henry's first use of his paid Magnifikid! subscription. I had requested a trial issue via their web site, and they're very nice about it, they send you an entire month worth! Each week is its own separate issue, it's quite cute. His trial issues were for March, and by time I decided to go ahead and order him a subscription, our first issues to arrive were for May. They're always a full month ahead, we actually just received his issues for June over the weekend.
And he missed it during April. He kept asking me for it when we'd go to Mass, and wanting to just use the May issues. Me being me (Type A personality) I refused. Using a May issue during April? I DON'T THINK SO.
Thus, yesterday he was very happy to be reunited with his little booklets. This week's included a word fine, which is always a huge hit.
*stage whisper* "Mommy!"
"What does D-i-s-c-i-p-l-e-s spell?"
"Oh, ok. I can't find it. Can you help me?"
He really seems to enjoy them, and I'm glad I got him a subscription. He's been a lot better behaved at Mass for a couple months now. I do feel, though, that he's still not "connecting" at Mass, and he goes only because I insist. We'll get there, though. He doesn't complain about going anymore, so that's good. On Wednesday evening, we have some sort of holy hour to go to at his school for a class project, and I'm looking forward to that. He isn't, but alas. :) I'm sure it's going to be all very cute. He claims that they each have a role "presenting" something, which confused me, since I assumed it was a Eucharistic adoration holy hour. When I asked for details, he asked if I wanted him to tell me (clearly his preferred response) and "ruin the surprise" but in that case, I said no. I'm expecting something adorable. Perhaps a May crowning?
