The Princess And The Penance

One of the reasons why I took the day off yesterday was I had no posts written and we were very busy; particularly with Princess P.

Julia’s class received the sacrament of Penance Wednesday evening in preparation for First Communion this spring. Princess P was very excited for the event, and claimed she had “three sins to confess,” but we weren’t allowed to know what they were.

The mass went smoothly, save for the two ignorant white trash fathers behind us who couldn’t stop talking and/or playing on their phones. I’m no Ned Flanders by any stretch, but you’re sitting in church, not at the local dive bar! Clowns.

Princess P’s class is not very large, and her row was up quickly. While standing in line waiting for the priest to call her over, she kept rocking back and forth. I’m not sure whether she was excited or nervous, but she was making a mess of her hair!

The sacrament went well, Julia said her priest was very nice, and since we promised her a snack afterward, we stopped for donuts. Pink icing, off course.

  1. It is worth repeating, Wyatt, you are indeed blessed. Enjoy the children as much as possible. They grow up much too quickly.

  2. TXNick – Kyle will be off to college in a year and a half. Erik will be in high school next year. Kevin and Julia are ten and nine, respectively. I am not letting those two grow up.

    1. I hate to tell you this, but it is inevitable. They do grow up. But if you have done a good job in raising them, they will follow your footsteps and be individuals you can be proud of.
