Funny

A new book arrived at the Haus. This is how Dino refers to it:

(Ominous:) “Mother, this is a DANGEROUS book…”
(Suddenly gleeful:) “…for BOYS!!”

Real
Our M&D princess castle recently broke into two pieces. This is not a judgment call on the quality; it is still a nice piece and favored toy. I defy any toy like that to survive being knocked off a table height repeatedly (Miss M and Sunshine both accidentally did this a few times trying to readjust the castle on the play table). The kids asked us NOT to glue it back because now the castle fit better on the table and they now could have two separate castles, in their opinion.

Yesterday Rascal took a clay St. Dominic that had been made for him by a friend at the Sister Servants of the Eternal Word, and made a “monastery” out of the smaller piece of the castle.

There St. Dominic was able to park his Mini Cooper (!) and offer Mass for LEGOs.

Pink roof notwithstanding, I was impressed with the mini monastery!

    We are real impress with the little monastery. Happy one month birthday Posie Pie and congratulations to Rascal on making his First Holy Communion.

    I definitely think St Dominic would have driven a Mini Cooper. Maybe.
    Did he add the Easter egg shell as the bell?! What a nice touch.
    Congrats on the baptism and 1st Communion!
