Two from my sister that I love,

When your children put their hands in the sink and then make the sign of the cross. (True story).

and

My favorite, also true because my nieces rock,

When your toddler says, "If Mary's a Queen, that makes me a princess."

You have (very old) dried out palm leaves behind crucifix's around the house.

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.

If you sneak my work, No Chocolate for You!
