While at the Easter Vigil, Ramona whispered to me, "Mommy, when we get home, can we read some books?"
Me: "It will be awfully late when we get home. I think we'll just go straight to bed."
Ramona, holding a finger to her chin, as if deep in thought: "I'll think about it."
Me: "No, I'll think about it."
Ramona looked at me, doubtful about my conclusion. "We'll both think about it," she pronounced.
A girl after my own heart:
Upon arriving home from the Vigil Mass, Ramona -- still clad in her winter coat, hat and scarf -- immediately shed her shoes and her tights.
Bundled, but with bare feet, she announced, "That's better!"
On Easter Sunday: "Mommy, may I have some more of this delicious and delectable chocolate?"
The answer (but then, you knew this) was a resounding yes. I joined her.
Have a delicious and delectable week-long celebration of the Octave of Easter! There are so many ways to celebrate.
