My Thomas Aquinas Story

Tom posted a wonderful Litany of Saints for All Saints' Day which you should go read. I wanted to share my family's story related to St. Thomas Aquinas.

Our babies are not born small. Primo was 9 lbs. 6 oz and Bubba was 10 lbs 1 oz. Each also had a pretty sizable head, but I must say with all of the mother love in my heart that Bubba has the biggest head I have ever seen on a boy.

We were leaving church one day when the 80 year old priest in residence walked past us. "Whoa," he says, "Look at the head on him!" We must have looked a little surprised because he quickly followed with, "That means he's going to be smart. St. Thomas Aquinas had a big head too, you know."
