John has been a real stinker the past few days. Refusing to clean up his toys, hitting, yelling, back talking, chewing with his mouth open, whining... It's been rough for me as a parent. 

At the same time, I've been preparing myself to celebrate Easter by stocking up on goodies for John's Easter basket. I've had the thought a few times lately: Why does John have to be so naughty? I don't really want to give him an Easter basket because he doesn't deserve one!

Last night, while praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet with Andrew, I remembered that Jesus died and rose from the dead for us - even though we are naughty all the time and are totally undeserving! 
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
John will definitely be getting his Easter basket.
