So Lent starts today and I was talking about what to give up with Abbie. I did the whole explanation to remind us of what Jesus gave up and how it helps us remember that and the good stuff. I said sometimes people give things up and without missing a beat she says "you mean like socks mommy" I so thought we were over the sock thing, but apparently I was wrong. I talked about maybe I'd give up Diet Coke, and she said "no mommy that would be awful"
we agreed we'd say extra prayers every day rather than give something up. Seems like an ok compromise.
