honey

so as my mom mentioned in the comments of my last post, the irony of my spiritual musings was this... while i was deep in thought about what God was teaching me about how I should or would be spending my last few lenten moments, and how i should relinquish control and let Him lead me ...even through sickness and other household chaos... hero had snuck up onto our kitchen counter top, got a jar of honey, and had been quietly pouring it all over mary. the whole jar, on her little sister (and on the carpet).

just as i clicked "post", mary started to fuss... and so i walked out of the bedroom to see what was up. and i just laughed... long and loud. as i took pictures, as i pulled off all the sticky jammies, as i bathed them, as mary threw up a LOT of honey after the bath, as i cleaned the mess... it actually made me feel good, like God was hearing me and was saying, 'Yep, your right...let it all go... and let me make things little more crazy so that you can put your words into action.'

how ironic...

and we did get to have a glorious easter, by the way... but more on that later. for now, observe my final lenten sacrifice.

  3. babies can eat honey around 12 months because then their bodies are strong enough to fight off the bad bacteria that might be in there. did hero have an explanation for the honey? haha

  4. Good job being sneaky, Hero. Dutifully fulfilling the big sister role. Poor Mary, I know how you feel. Being the little sister sucks.

    Oh yeah and good thing she is approaching 12 months!

    The best part is hero's face in the first pic. Give your babies kisses for me.

  7. I'm with you, Tina! Yeah, the babies look adorable but all I keep thinking is poor Mary. That would be horribly uncomfortable. I hope Hero got BlackOut for that one...
