My minis are really into praying. Mia and Sam take turns saying the prayer at meal time... they both need a turn! Mia loves to squint and often has a really happy/entertained look on her face. Sam will close his eyes for a second, then blinks rapidly throughout the rest of the prayer.
Sam has to get his "MEN!!!!" out of the way before he will take it seriously. Somewhere along his prayer education path he learned to scream "MEN (amen)" as loud as he can almost immediately after the prayer begins. He is really enthusiastic about his "men" and we only reinforce him because we can't stop laughing. Here he is yelling "men" while Mia is taking it seriously. I caught this sweet little interaction between them on my camera.
"No sammy, close your eyes yike dissss!"
"now say, Heamly Fader..."
"food, bessings, family, nana, papa, jense, ellie, mia sam, mommy, daddy, Jacob family, peeschool, good day, be happy, be nice, dos right (do what's right)."
"here Sam, now take a bite."
"Owe, Sammy did it... he bite Mia."
