"You will be a better mom because you are a theologian, and a better theologian because you are a mom."

Is it true? In this blog, I explore the interplay and intersection of motherhood and theologianhood.

Look at how much fun the girls are having here. They're playing a game where each of them throws the card in the air and then Maia yells "Uh-oh, spaghettios!" Eva seemed to think it was pretty funny, but I think she wanted more turns throwing the card up than she got.

When you see a video like this, you think, wow, siblings are really great. Isn't it awesome that they have so much fun together? But would you believe that just hours earlier Maia bit Eva's cheek so hard it left a mark, Eva cried for ten minutes, and Maia cried for ten minutes after her punishment of her friends having to leave the house. It's so weird how Maia can really seem to enjoy and appreciate Eva at one moment, and then be really mean the next.
