Scenes from Christmas Day :: Battle for the Bouncer

by | Jan 6, 2010 | Advent and Christmas, Just for Fun | 6 comments

On Christmas Day, as I was preparing Brunch after Mass, I asked Captain to go and get Snuggles old bouncy chair from under the crib so I could use it for the baby.

Well apparently Snuggles was not quite ready to pass it down to his new little sister… He was not very happy when I placed her in it, and as soon as I took Rose back out of the chair, he immediately climbed in and tried buckling himself.

I think he was reminiscing about his days of being able to “Move it Move it.” 😉

Well, the timer is about to go off, for the crown cake the girls and I have baking in the oven, so it is time for me to go… Hopefully I will be back later to finish posting our Christmas Pictures.

I hope you are all enjoying the traditional feast of the Epiphany today,
the 12th day of Christmas!

    Oh my that is so funny! That is what our little Hannah did when we passed her bouncer down to Madelyn.

    It reminds me of the book, "Peter's Chair." Cute.

    How funny! One of my kids, at a year old, would crawl in it, buckle up, and scream to be let out. Then she'd crawl in, buckle up, and scream to be let out. I learned quickly. 😉

    That is so precious!!! Buttercup did that with the car seat of all things!

    We have a picture of a big kid in a bouncy seat, too… and another in the baby swing at my mother's with her feet dragging the floor. Oh, the good old days. 🙂

    I have to say THANK YOU! It was so heartening to see the pictures of the battle for the bouncer…I've been frustrated with my 2 1/2 year old doing the same thing…I thought he'd be over it now that his little sister is almost a year old, but he still will crawl into her infant car seat sometimes! Thanks for letting me know my kids aren't the only ones!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
