"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.

Pretending Mary

(In the photo above, Maia is posing like one of the Immaculate Conception statues that we see when we walk around our neighborhood. She thought that her purple sled made a nice little shrine.)

"At nursery school, when we get dressed up in the dress up clothes, Gia likes to play bride and Madison likes to play princess, but I'm the only one who wants to play Mary."

In the video below, Maia tries to rope me into playing Mary with her (that's Jesus underneath her shirt). Eva was playing the part of Joseph, but since Eva didn't know that, much of Eva's being Joseph consisted of Mary yelling at her to come back to the house.
