Lent is hard work.
Especially hard work.
Especially on day #2.
****Especially for a certain 6 year old little boy in my family, saying this under his breath as he is persevering through Phonics this morning:
"Man, I really did not mean to actually give up bubble gum for Lent."
"I mean, not the whole Lent."
"I really wish I did not give up bubble gum."
"This stinks. This just really really stinks."
****Then a certain sly 7 year old sister says to ME, loudly and sternly, "Mom, can I have some bubble gum during school work?"
You should have seen the face on a certain 6 year old.!
The nerve of her! Arrrr!
Siblings can be soooooooo cruel!
To let you know, I did NOT cave in and give anyone any bubble gum today. I didn't have the heart to make my son's Lent- giving -up any worse than it had to be!
There's always tomorrow....
