Wow They Really Do See!


The other day we had both boys in their high chairs getting ready for dinner. Butterfly had set out the plates and given the boys their forks (her chore) and we were just bringing the food to the table. Butterfly called out, "Let's pray!" Both the boys folded their arms with big happy grins on their faces.

It was so adorable.

Butterfly said the prayer with Professor muttering along with her. She mentioned in her prayer that he was saying it with her and how happy she was that he learned to pray.

That was also so adorable!

Once she said "amen" both boys yelled out, "men!"

The fun thing about this is that we haven't taught them prayers. With Butterfly we folded her arms for her and taught her how to do this. We didn't do it with the boys. Mostly because they out number us now and mostly because we are too tired/hungry/frustrated to make them fold their arms.

Apparently we're doing something right because now any time anyone says, "Prayer time!" they fold their arms.

Seriously it's so stinking cute I'm going to have to record it.



  1. How sweet! I do miss that age sometimes. My girls used to say "amen" when we finished stories instead of The End :)

    Adorable! Can't wait to see the video :)

  3. They really DO watch everything we do. Amazing, isn't it? The most horrifying thing (in a weird but good way) for me was when KitKat came home singing something that I had not taught her. Wow. Learning from someone other than me. Yikes. ;)
