Now that A is talking more, we have added prayer to our normal bedtime routine. After we read some books and sing some songs, we lay in the bed and thank God for all of our blessings. When we first started, we would say "Dear God, thank you for..." and then list the names of our family members, friends, possessions, etc., and Alex would repeat each one as we ticked things off the list.
Now, when we say, "Time to pray", Alex immediately folds his hands and says, "Dear God, thank you for..." and starts to list the things he is most thankful for. Last night, that list went something like this:
Dear God, thank you for...my bunny rabbit...thank you for apple juice...thank you for Daddy...thank you for cheese...thank you for the letter L...thank you for apple juice (again)...thank you for the number 5...thank you for my comfy bed...amen!
I guess we all know where his priorities lie. I mean, apple juice trumped daddy, and mommy didn't even make the list. Can apple juice fix you breakfast or drive you to the park or CHANGE YOUR POOP-FILLED DIAPERS???!!!! I didn't think so.
