A fun way to make a yummy snack. Set up the stand and ask a reasonable price anywhere from cents per glass depending on their size. Have your kids go with you to the store to pick up the lemonade mix or lemons and let them pick out an item they are trying to earn by having the stand. Why not let them learn how to be a magician themselves?
Contact me Your Screaming Kids Are Distracting Me I was at a holy hour the other night, totally focused and immersed in my thoughts, when from the back of the church came the sound of a wailing toddler.
Just like that, I lost it. I was completely distracted by some kid who was far too young to be stuck sitting in a church.
And thank God for that. See, I was totally focused on planning the rest of my night. I was coming up with a packing list and deciding which posts I could update before I headed out in the morning. I was thinking about the songs I have on my new smartphone and wondering if the USPS would forward the package I had shipped to the house I was staying at in time for me to get it at the house I was staying at next.
Yeah, I was focused, all right. Then that kid started screaming, and I snapped out of it. I heard footsteps and a door opening and offered a prayer for the patience of that poor parent.
I prayed for those who were really angry about the disturbance. I prayed in thanksgiving for the gift of life. Parents, I know all too well the frustration of taking little ones to Mass. Prayer is so often just a veil for narcissism. When your kids start screaming, it distracts us from ourselves.
We start praying for you. We pray for single parents. We pray in thanksgiving for our grown children or we beg for screaming children of our own. I was visiting with my grandmother the other day and mentioned that Cecilia shouted stream-of-consciousness for the entire Mass today.
Jesus embraced children, folks, and so does our Church. The solution is for you to go to the 7am quickie Mass or the solemn high Mass that takes 3 hours. Or maybe offer up your distractions and frustrations for their parents, who are so much more distracted and frustrated than you.
Take this as a sign that God is calling you out of yourself. Ooh look at her shoes! I wonder how many states have more vowels than consonants. How far is it from here to Maine?
I should make a pie this afternoon. What would I even do with a giant mouse suit? Because if the normal noises of normal children are going to distract me, I was going to be distracted anyway. By cute clothes or cute men or split ends or whatever 1. Unlike most of the thoughts that grab my easily-distracted mind, the screams of your children are a distraction that draw me to deeper prayer.
So take them to the cry room if you want—or stay in the pew.
Because yes, your kids are distracting me.Literature Response: The Day the Crayons Quit. Good idea for Writer's Workshop mini lesson on writing letters.
