It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, It’s… Drizzling

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, It’s… Drizzling

Driving home from the store tonight I said something about it raining. A little voice piped up in the back of the car.

Bella: It’s not raining.
Me: Yes it is.
B: No. It’s not raining. It’s cloudy.
Me: Yes, it’s cloudy. It’s also raining.
B: No, Mama, it’s not raining.
Me: Yes, Bella, it’s raining.
B: It’s not raining. It’s drizzling. (Said with a kind of ‘how dumb can you be, mama?’ tone.)
Me: Yes, it’s drizzling. Drizzling is a kind of rain. We’re both right.

My sister and I both had to laugh. The way she was so positive she was right and I was wrong. Then she laughed too, not sure why but delighting in our mirth.

  • I completely agree with you and the review of Magnifikids. I teach First Communion classes and it is disheartening how much we have to remind the parents how important it is for the children (and the families) to attend Mass regularly. I mean, if you wouldn’t go for any other reason, wouldn’t you at least go to help your child be ready for First Communion! Sadly, it’s not always the case.
    We teach the parts of the Mass and the responses and it’s immediately clear who knows anything about what I’m saying and who has no context for it at all.
    We’ve been using Magnifikids subscriptions for our kids for several years. I suggest them to the parents in the sacrament program as really useful. We’ve even had grandparents see them in church and ask us about them after Mass.
    We don’t always take full advantage of the Saturday pages to discuss the Gospel theme in advance. But the kids like the activity and comic and can follow along the Mass. My dd especially likes the vocabulary notes at the bottom for the difficult words.
