Lenten life with a toddler...

"Anne, can you ____________ {fill in the blank with any request: pick up your toys? eat your dinner? not yell viciously at your brother? hold Mommy's hand while we cross the street? stop breaking all of your crayons in half?}

Answer, 100% of the time:


"I knew you were going to say that."

I mean, it *was* her very first word (so sweet?!), so this isn't a huge shock. I'm offering it up. :0

But at the same time, after the priest traced the cross of ashes on her forehead yesterday afternoon, she announced:

"Thank you!!"

I mean...precious.


  1. Can I just say how much older she looks than Annamarie?! It must be the hair, Annamarie still has crazy wispy baby hair.

    So cute!!

    1. Ha ha! How cute! Anne had a head of dark hair from the WOMB. She was born with it, the nurses couldn't believe it.


Thank you for commenting! I read and appreciate every single one, and I will respond to each one personally!
