Orthodox Christians wear crosses and when I was expecting our first child, I fully intended to keep a cross on my little one! For the first few months after she was born, I'd dress her and carefully pin a safety pin with her cross dangling from it onto her outfit. As time wore on and things got busier, I was lucky if I remembered to pin on her cross on Sunday morning before church!
With the birth of our son in December, I was reminded of my intention to keep a cross on my children and recommitted myself to the task. I devised a plan to help make this important part of getting my children dressed a habit. I simply remove the cross pin from whatever they were wearing and pin it to whatever I am putting them in immediately. This means that they have their cross on whether they are wearing their pajamas or are in their fifth outfit of the day. There are times that I forget this step, but they are fewer and farther between then when I didn't make this a priority!
