Something that has nothing to do with Advent

Yesterday I noticed Sunshine bobbing on the other side of the coffee table.  I knew she wasn’t walking, nor was she crawling.  Upon investigation, I found she was shuffling around on her chubby little knees, like a penitent!  What a darling!  It called to mind the brother with whom she shares a birthday, the Dinosaur.  When he was her age, he would shuffle around the house on one knee, as if he were genuflecting.  I thought at the time that perhaps someday God would bless our family with a vocation, and maybe my little tyke who shuffled through the house so piously would become our priest.


he might reprise Kevin Kline’s delightfully over-the-top role as the Pirate King.

I warned you this had nothing to do with Advent.
