Boys Will Be Boys


Not this innocent face. No. He would never throw spitwads at church…

The wadded up piece of paper shot across the music area right in front of me while we were kneeling for the Eucharistic Prayer. A minute later, Alex started snorting. I looked at him with a scowl developing, and he whispered, “Was that Michael’s nametag?”

And I realized: yes. Why, yes, it was. My kid made a spitwad of his “nametag Sunday” sticker and flung it across the music area.

Every time I think I’m done being caught off guard by the antics my kids are capable of…boom. There they go.

    When my boys were around your boys’ ages, we were sitting in mass in the second pew from the front. Our priest was giving his homily as he was walking in front of the altar. One of my boys had a super ball in his pocket (a little rubber ball that’s very “bouncy”.) As our priest is talking, the ball somehow goes flying from underneath the pew in front of us and bounces over to our priest. He doesn’t even flinch. He remains on subject, bends down, picks up the ball and brings it over to our family as he continued his homily!! I wanted to die!

    • Oh, my gosh, that is HILARIOUS. Those are fabulous moments for everybody in the congregation EXCEPT the parents, who probably remember nothing whatsoever about Mass that day except that incident! 🙂
