Firstly an update on the shouting. We have had a few relapses, but it is actually getting easier. I have noticed a real difference, it is not my first reaction a situation.
Also the fact that I have been unwell has meant that the volume button has had to be turned down with the boys too. This is good news, no actually this is great. On the few occasions I have had to raise my voice the impact has been immediate and it feels good not to be all fishwife.
I have been discussing Jesus with the boys and they are both finding it hard to comprehend about the resurrection, so I have bi passed this for now and we have been discussing the fact that Jesus was aware that his death was near. This seems to sit fine with the boys, infact death is not a thing to be feared in their eyes. It is a natural progression in their eyes.
Part of it is down to their Grandpa being a farmer, so everything is black and white with no in between, part of it is down to their innocence and their trusting in what Mad Dad and I say, which is fine, but it does make it hard to sometimes deal with the bible.
So peeps, I need some help here, we need some help. How would you discuss Easter with a 3 and a 5 year old, they are both bright and love to learn. I would like some ideas on way to explain this to them.
MadDad is a very lapsed catholic and Easter doesn’t hold any pleasure for him at all and that is not what I want for the boys, so friends I am all ears.
