Today was silly hat day at VBS. Madeline's first choice was her princess tiara from Disney on Ice. But the velcro kept pulling on her hair so she switched last-minute to the light-up cowgirl hat. I thought it was a smart decision.
Caleb and I stayed in the back for a few minutes to watch the worship. I LOVE hearing 500+ little voices screaming and watching tiny bodies jump up and down for Jesus.
Funny story of the day: Joe's cousin David works at Chick-fil-A so, of course, he's basically a celebrity in Madeline's eyes. This week, he is on the VBS worship team and IS ON THE STAGE, MAMA. This has now sealed his status as TOTAL AND UTTER ROCKSTAR in Madeline's eyes.
He was also in a skit today but his character wasn't nice and wouldn't share his whistle with someone. This unsettled Madeline to her core. HER CORE, PEOPLE.
On the car ride home, Madeline went on and on and on about how "upset and disappointed" she was that David didn't share. This led to a pretty convoluted explanation on acting, characters and skits and I'll be the first to admit I did a pretty poor job. (It's harder than you think!)
After discussing this for the entire 20-minute car ride, Madeline hopped out of her seat, turned to me and said, "David still should have shared his whistle."
Let us all pray his character is nicer tomorrow.
The long, fun-filled morning (let's face it, the deep discussion on David's spiritual status) meant Madeline was wiped for the afternoon. After her nap, she woke up, collapsed next to me on the couch and fell back asleep.
Thank you, VBS.
If you can't read it, the bib says "Star of Mommy's Blog."
Yes. Yes, he is.
These kids might exhaust me but dude. I love them more than a mash-up of Adele, butter and essie nail polish.
