signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs

my wife was out of town this past week, so I was by myself at church early last Sunday morning with all 3 of my young boys.  they were behaving pretty well, particularly Luke, my 2.5 yr old son.  Luke can at times be just a tad frustrating, but for being only 2.5 yrs old – he does pretty well sitting still in the church pews, reading his little kid’s Bible or playing with small toy tractors (his favorite).

this week, during the sermon, the pastor was using random clip-art pictures on the projector screens at the front of the church to illustrate a few of the points he was making in his sermon.  I didn’t realize Luke was paying attention to the projector screens, until the pastor — to emphasize that some times choices are simple, black and white, or left and right – used this image on the screen:

Luke, looking up at just that moment blurted out:

BATMAN!  Da-nah-nah-nah…. BATMAN!

I guess I can sort of see the similarity, especially through the eyes of a young boy, and at a pretty good distance from our seats.

Luckily, I had wisely picked a pew towards the back of church, and maybe only 1 or 2 nearby families heard.   I thought it was hilarious, and had trouble not laughing out loud in church, though.

    Apparently my 2-year-old son has a habit of shouting out in church too. If the service is going on too long for him he will wait until the priest pauses for breath and then loudly announce, “All Done Now!”

      O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
      Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

      Tillerman – my 2-yr old does the same thing, usually towards the end of the service, and always when it is really quiet.

    Wow Baydog! Someone who has been bludgeoned by nuns? A Catlicker (as a friend says)? Church of England for me (not quite Catlicker) but very close.

    No Tweez, you got it all wrong.

    Great to hear that I am not the only one who has to control himself from laughing out loud at church on account of my Children.
