I ended up having a surprise Pastoral Council meeting tonight. As a result, I had no sitter to watch Vince. John was at a weekly game and couldn't take him, so I decided Vince was coming with me.
I am so proud of him! He was like a little angel the whole time! Since we were the last ones in, we sat next to our pastor since (for some reason) no one ever sits right next to him for our meetings. There always seems to be a gap on either side of him as if we council members don't want to get caught sitting next to the teacher. Ha ha ha!
Anyway, we sat next to him for the meeting, so Vincent was very excited to share his crayons and coloring book. At first he called him "Jesus" (this happens a lot, and I think it's because I point towards the Consecrated Host and say "That's Jesus up there" at every Mass). I said, "No, Vincent, that's Fr. Peter." So he repeated me with a giggle as if saying "Duh, Mommy, I know" and called him by his proper name for the rest of the meeting.
I was tickled to see Father drawing along with Vincent as the rest of us took turns talking over the various agenda points. I thus learned our pastor is a relatively decent artist! He can draw horses and boats with the best of 'em! *Giggle*
Anyway, Father cracked some sort of joke that solicited laughs around the table, and Vincent, not understanding the joke but not wanting to feel left out of the fun, cackled so loudly that we all started laughing again at this enthusiasm.
When we did final prayers, Father chose the Our Father and Vincent was able to do the Sign of the Cross and hit certain words of the prayer. I was so proud of him!!! My little munch. He's such a big boy and all he does is make his momma proud! May God bless him and keep him always close to His Heart.
