Miss Boo goes to a Lutheran Preschool and today they are celebrating Ash Wednesday. And with this comes the ash on the foreheads of all the students.
I DON'T THINK SO!
I am not close minded, but I believe it would be confusing to a 4 year old. And to our particular 4 year old, it could play out in a couple of different ways:
1. She could be upset if I don't allow her to participate and throw a fit.
2. She could be upset if they try to put it on her forehead and throw a fit.
3. She could participate and be confused why we don't do it on our church (LDS) and that might possibly end up in a fit if she can't wrap her arms around it.
See the general theme going here. She is a good kid, but if she doesn't understand something it can overwhelm her. We are working on how she reacts to things, but in the best interests of Miss Boo, we are playing hookey.
She will go to school after Devotional is over today with her friend that is in the same boat.
