WIW on "Cold" Sunday

Oh, Sunday mornings.  This one was a doozy, I tell you!


- Cecilia saw that John Paul was going to wear his "salmon" pants to Mass, and freaked out because SHE wanted to wear HER pink pants!  We discussed ad nauseam the fact that girls don't wear pants to Mass (in our house), and she finally decided that she would wear her Easter dress.  And Minnie Mouse socks.  And sandals.  Oh, whatever.

- John Paul found blocks that are shaped like the 10 commandments, colored on them to make them more realistic (yes, there are 11 lines...), and freaked out searching for glue because he so desperately wanted them to be glued together

 

- Then John Paul had to freak out at Mass because he didn't WANT it to be Divine Mercy Sunday, HE wanted it to be "Cold" Sunday.  Whatever that means.  Fine, it's Cold Sunday.

- Then Cecilia had to freak out because she wanted to be called "Ratatouille" instead of Cecilia.  Fine.

- Mary Claire puked all over the floor and the pew in front of us (thankfully she didn't hit the woman in front of us.  I sometimes want to have a sign that says, "If you're coming into Mass late, SIT NEAR ANYONE BUT US, WE WILL RUIN YOUR MASS!!!" but I feel like our "sign" is the presence of 4 children under the age of 4.  And yet the 50 empty pews in the rest of the church are not as enticing as the spot right in front of us...).

- Then Cecilia had to loudly proclaim, "She puked on WHERE?  She puked on da floor!  On WHAT floor?  On da CHURCH floor!!!"

- And then she had to nibble on Mary Claire's fingers and tell everyone loudly, "I'm eatin' da baby!  I had a baby for bweakfast!!!" and start singing, "MOM HAD A BABY FOR BWEAKFAST!"


Pink hat photobomb!
 - Then John Paul talked most of the Mass about how he wanted to go to confession.  Except he's 3, so...  No.
But Elizabeth was good, so that's something?
Needless to say, the big kids are watching a movie downstairs so that I'm not tempted to defenestrate either of them.


This would have been a good one if it weren't so out of focus!


Ok, self-timer fail this week. 

Shirt:  H&M
Cardigan:  Target
Skirt:  eShakti
Shoes: ?  I think some old lady outlet store...
Pedicure:  1.5 years overdue
Hat:  H&M
Baby:  Mary Claire
Elizabeth:  Getting dressed, as usual
John Paul's faux-hawk:  Kid who sleeps with his hand in his hair


Every shade of pink possible, sandals on the wrong feet, SO styling!


Too-big pants that even a belt wouldn't hold up...  And then I remembered his suspenders from last week!  Perfect!

There you go, they may have been the most poorly-behaved kids at Mass, but at least we all looked cute?  Sigh...

Visit the other well-dressed ladies at FL&P!

  1. Oh, Rosie, your posts are so funny. And you and your gang look very cute today, out of focus or not.

    I LOVE YOUR HAT! And your skirt. And your cardigan.

    I can't get over your little boy. He seems destined for the priesthood. I don't think I've ever heard of a child so young, and yet so aware of and in tune with all aspects of the Faith!

  5. My first thought when I saw the pictures was about how much I love John Pauls's hair. Then when I read that it was the result of how he had slept, I loved it even more. And Rosie, you have wonderful Sunday outfits! I have loved them all! :)

  9. TOO CUTE! All of you. My daughter has her shoes on the wrong feel at least half the time. And today she was sporting tights with sandals, too. :-)

  10. Beautiful family, and I love the Mass stories. It is always so heartening to know your own children are not the only loud ones at church. My toddler just likes to give a running commentary all through Mass. I blame EWTN ans Raymond Arroyo for their continuing commentary on all the masses and celebrations at St. Peter's over the conclave. :)

  11. My husband just asked if you make this stuff up. And then I reminded him that you have four children and that when we have four children, they will be just as bizarre (yet funny!). Your posts are always so great! And your kids are so, so cute!

    1. Mandi, I know this family, and let me tell you, what Rosie says is ALL REAL. Rosie was pretty darned funny when she was very young, too. Just wait until the twins are a couple of years older—it is going to be dangerously funny in that house!

    1. Thanks! Telling the kids I'll take their picture is the only way to keep them from sabotaging the self-timer - for some reason they ALWAYS want to hold hands and take pictures together!

  16. You all look amazing...and I just love reading your Mass stories, because they sound so much like my life. (No vomit for us today, though!)

    1. Thanks! I feel like we're *this* close to no more spitting up - with the big kids it had mostly tapered off around 5 or 6 months, so I'm really hoping we're near the end!

  19. Okay, but they *look* adorable, and I am now the proud owner of the knowledge of what defenestrate means. Genius!

    And you look fantastic, Happy Cold Monday!

  20. Oh, how I love mint green. Do you think I could have Lowes match the color of your skirt if I print out one of these pictures? We're painting an accent wall in our living room, and I'm going mint green. It's supposed to be our retro room. BTW: The fit of that skirt? Perfect.

  21. It just wouldn't be a good Sunday without a proper freak out or two right? And your outfits are great; they were spared from the puke...hopefully? Big fan of skirts with pockets and suspenders.
