I am grateful

I am sooo grateful that Liam had a good day today. He was so easy to get along with and please. What more could a mother of a 2.5 year old ask for?

Well, I'll tell you, I guess I could ask for a humble child. Liam said two blessings on the food tonight. I blessed the food first, but he wasn't satisfied once I finished my prayer. With stroganoff on Liam's plate, Daddy helped him bless the food, and many other things including Aunt Heidi who is recovering from chemo. It was a sweet prayer and very well repeated. THEN, the corn was finished steaming and I put corn on Liam's plate, next to his noodles. He said, "bless corn? Payers?" So I helped him bless the corn and he was satisfied and ate his food.

A good day.

I'm SOOOO grateful he was good boy too. You and Ian both deserved that! Here's to hoping today is the same way.

I'm glad you had a good day! Did you have dessert later? Did he want to bless that too? So cute!

Yay to the good day!

Little Dude is starting to understand the whole prayers thing, and actually seems to enjoy the bedtime prayer, now.

I love it!

So sweet!! Eli has been 'double praying' recently too. It warms your heart, doesn't it?

What a cutie!

When my kids started praying, we sometimes had 2 or 3 prayers at each meal, or at bedtime.

Sweet little guy. I'm excited to see you guys! I tagged you, btw.

His "two-year-old assertive self" shines through even during prayers. Makes me chuckle...

Wishing you many more good days ahead...well, for a two-year-old maybe "good moments" are more accurate.

I love when toddlers pray! He went the extra mile to be sure the corn was included! I hadn't heard that Heidi has cancer. Oh, she's so young. I hope she is okay.

Yes! It is definitely a good day when a 2 and half year old is easy to get along with!
