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

Plans for a Saintly Family

This morning, Maia bounded into the room and saw Patrick's "coming home from the hospital" outfit.

"Oh, that's cute!" she said, "I just can't wait to have a little brother!"

A few seconds later: "And won't it be great when Patrick dies? Then there will be two Saint Patricks!"

She then added: "And one Saint Maia, and one Saint Eva, and Saint Jeffrey, and Saint Maria... and Saint Anna" (in reference to our not-yet-conceived fourth child, whom she believes will be a girl named Anna).
