A few months ago, I started asking Bubbers if he wanted to say the prayer during mealtimes or bedtime.
And every time, he eagerly complies.
Studiously, he folds his hands and stares at my face as I prompt him on what to say.
His little voice and upturned face are so precious, I often have a hard time concentrating and have to restrain myself from peeking at him the entire time!
And I especially love it when he adds unexpected flavor to his prayers…..
This is a recording of him from last month.
He was saying the blessing over our lunch.
And at this time, he greatly enjoyed dramatic endings….. :)
This is a recording of him from yesterday.
He said the opening prayer for Family Home Evening.
And currently, he is very good at anticipating what comes next….. :)
p.s. He’s also gotten good at letting us know if our prayers are getting too long by inserting a resounding “Amen!” while we’re still going….. :)
p.p.s. And if we don’t take the hint, he faithfully follows it up with another enthusiastic and finalizing, “Amen!!”
p.p.p.s. And by this time I’m laughing so hard I can’t listen or pray, so the prayer is finally ended.
