Inviting Heaven for a Play Date

Last night, Jeremy was praying with the three oldest boys in their bedroom while I was with Zachary and Nicholas in the next room. Zachary was listening to the prayers and joining in from time to time. At the close of the prayers there was a short litany and Zachary joined in like this...

Jeremy: Our Lady of Guadalupe

Three boys: Pray for us

Zachary: Play with us

He continued to repeat this response after every saint named.

I think he's on to something there! (I also think Little Brother would get along with him just fine)

That's a good one, Suzanne! :) I love it kids misunderstand (and mispronounce) prayers and such...we're in the throes of "Free toys! Free toys! Emman-u-el, shall come to Thee, O Israel!" with our 6 year old every night at the Advent wreath lighting. He just will NOT concede that the word in that song is "Rejoice!" :) And with Emma we had, "May all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in pieces. Amen."

If only they stayed this little for longer! :)

There are a few bonuses to this...

1) You know they have good friends, and excellent role models.

2) If the saints "play with us", we know that they will keep a close eye on us and certainly pray for us!

(It is certainly adorable when kids mispronounce words - although in certain circumstances, I wonder if they don't actually have right to begin with!)

I don't know which was more hilarious, this post or the previous one!
