Such elation

Shortly after the new pope was elected, I came across a printable coloring page with the pope's image on it.  My Rosiegirl loves to color, so I printed it out for her, thinking I could teach her about the pope while she was coloring.  I printed the page and gave it to her.  I asked her if she knew who was on the page, and she took one look at it and shouted, "Pope Francis!"  I suggested she show Deacon Pop what she had, and she ran into the other room shouting, "Poppy, look!  Pope Francis, Pope Francis, Pope Francis!"

Must be doing something right

Like most kids, mine love to play with big empty cardboard boxes.  Usually they like to sit in them and pretend the boxes are vehicles, like a car or a rocket ship (thank you, Little Einsteins).  Rosie also likes to get her markers out and draw on the cardboard inside the boxes.

So I was not surprised the last time we got a package in the mail, when Rosie hopped into the box with her markers and started drawing away.  This time, though, she told me that her box was a church, and the two people she had drawn inside were a priest and a deacon: Father Steve and "Poppa."

I think she's obsessed

I keep finding these drawings all over the house...

What can I say?  My girl loves spiders.
