s wisdom

 the other day little S was telling me about a conversation she had with her class. Her teacher asked them what traditions their families have and what they know about Christmas.

i asked her what she said.

S responded that all she could remember was that Jesus is the light of the world. 

pretty good answer i thought.

then she leaned forward, as if to break it to me, and said

"mom, not every one in my class is catholic."

i told her that i bet there are a lot of kids with different religions in her class.

she said in a very serious voice "*emma is not even catholic."

oh. i said. well what religion is she?

"she's a vegetarian."

on another note, we were lucky enough to get a brief visit from my cousin from indiana. her flight was cancelled and she was stuck here overnight. we were so happy to have her and her sweet little boy come and stay with us. she's a photographer... she snapped some awesome pics.

my poor baby boy has his first ear infection. he hates his medicine. it has been a real challenge to get him to take it.

hopefully he will be feeling better soon.

little D is home from school today with a nasty cough and R is still sleeping... you know what that means.

'tis the season i guess.
