Ok, I know but this is a cute kid story.
We are not Catholic (however I do think the idea of Lent is a valuable idea) anyway my great-niece who is four announced she is giving gum up for Lent.
We reminder her we were not Catholic but she informed us her ‘bestest friend’ in preschool is.
Then we reminder her she is not allowed to chew gum.
Her response is so typical of kids, “yea well if I did I’d give it up”.

(If you are going to quote the Bible know what you are quoting.)

Sounds like she is immediately eligible for being an honorary Bishop and with that sort of understanding of how religion works...being the Pope can't be far behind!

How adorable! I did give up bubblegum for Lent one time and it was hard. I did get a big box though in my Easter basket, so that was good. :o)
