Sadie's "Rosary"

Yesterday I was sitting at the dining room table working on a rosary while Sadie and Mae played.  Sadie had been asking me questions about the rosary while I worked, and after a few minutes of silence announced that she had made a "necklace" (she's had her eye on the rosary I made myself and desperately wants it as a "necklace") and then confirmed that it was in fact a "rosary."  She was pretty proud of her creation:

Of course it very quickly turned into: "Can you make me a good rosary for my wedding Mommy?" followed by demanding to be changed into her white princess dress and then claiming my rosary which she was surprisingly careful with).  Daddy got home just in time to be convinced to waltz around the living room.  

She actually went and found the rosary coloring book to make it part of her "rosary" because I put it away last night, and we hadn't worked in it at all today.

And of course what do you do with a rosary?  You pray.  So after making the rosary (before convincing Mommy to change her into the white dress and then convincing Daddy to dance) she sat down in the middle of it and prayed.  I had to snap a picture:

Deep in thought with her favorite stuffed animals.  She constantly surprises me with her sweet, growing faith and love.


  1. Great, now I've gotta mop up the floor - you went and made my heart melt all over it!

    *Someone really needs to put this into a cheesy pick up line book*

    Seriously, though, that's wonderful. More proof you are doing everything right as a mom. :)

  2. Where did you find a Rosary colorbook??? I bought a huge wooden beaded rosary for my son, but we barely get through one decade before his attention is gone. But he's 2 1/2, I guess it's a start. =) Love reading your blog. You're an encouragement! Blessings!

  3. That is so amazingly adorable, I loved the picture of her praying in the middle of her rosary of stuffed animals, shoes, and books :)

  4. That is wonderful!! I so hope that my Little Tiger will grow faith like that! We've books and read them and go to Mass and I don't hide my prayers...

  5. Thanks you guys!

    We got the coloring books from EWTN. They have a whole bunch like this: although I think you can also get them individually. I think we're due to buy another set because Sadie has thoroughly colored hers!

  6. So cute! I love watching how a child's faith can be shaped by her family. I have a big plastic rosary from when I was baptized. Maybe you could get her one, or make her one, like it? It's basically plastic beads with a plain white cord and knots to hold the sets together.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
