Patrick's World is Pretty Pink

Poor Patrick.  He's surrounded by pink girliness all day long.

And since Sadie wants to be a Mommy along side me, he is often accompanied by baby Princess Aurora:

Here she is about to inform me that Patrick is her baby.  It went something like this:

Me:  "Oh, no, no, no.  You do not pick your brother up." This is said as she puts her hands under him to scoop him up.  She's allowed to hold him if I hand her to him, and she's sitting and she's on her best behavior...

Sadie:  "But I have to Mommy.  Because he's my baby.  Because I love him soooooooo much."

Me:  "You still don't get to pick up your brother."

And then, a few hours later:

Sadie:  "I'm trying to teach him Mommy.  He's not doing it."  She takes his little hand and holds it in hers:  "In the name of the father and the son and the holy spirit."  As she says the words she makes his hand make the sign of the cross

All the attention may be the reason that he doesn't resist spending quiet time in his bassinet, which stays safely in the kitchen, behind the baby gate.  He knows he won't be cuddled unrelentingly by his sisters there.


  1. Such a gorgeous face - I don't blame the girls :)

  2. I have to tell you your posts about Patrick and the girls crack me up. I tend not to read it when my "bleeds scarlet and grey" children are about though, lol. Patrick seems to often have that patient and long-suffering look I have seen on men sitting outside dressing rooms though :).

    Seriously,I enjoy your blog, you have a beautiful family and prayers for you and yours this Advent season.


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!
