Bad, bad, mama!

At church the priest was talking about the miracle of the loaves and the fishes, and what a phenomenon Jesus was. Sophia leans over and says quietly, "What's a phenomenon?'

I whispered back, "Pa ti pi ti pi."


I sang back, quietly, "Phenomenon, pa ti pi ti pi."

The hugest grin spread over her face, and while she listened while I told her what the word really meant, that didn't stop her from dancing every time the priest said "phenomenon." Which was, seriously, about 15 times.

Paul noticed, because although my kids dance frequently at mass, it's not usually during the homily, and asked what was going on. I whispered, "Phenomenon, pa ti pi ti pi." Pretty soon the other two were doing it too, and thankfully, the homily was over before they started dancing and singing.

Please, for crying out loud, tell me I am not the only person that would have occurred to?
