Evening Prayers...

From a 5-year-old. :) First, however, I need to give a little background information. We had strawberry shortcake for dessert this evening and afterwards ushered the boys upstairs for their baths, and I went downstairs to fold the load of laundry that had just finished drying. The boys came downstairs after their baths to finish watching Peter Pan with the knowledge that it was time for bed as soon as the movie was finished. Well...the movie finished, they went upstairs, but not directly to bed. I could hear little boy giggles through the house as it sounded like they were having the time of their lives staying up just a little bit longer. I noticed, after they were both finally in bed, that part of the angel food cake was missing--it had been torn off by little boy hands when someone had snuck into the kitchen without his mama or daddy noticing. Rob asks David about this when he was tucking him in, just before prayer time and David tells him (with a sigh, I'm sure), "Yeah Dad, I did it" or "Yeah, it was me..." Rob told him that he wasn't mad at him and that we appreciated him being honest about it when asked and then proceeded to pray with the D-man.

Rob finishes praying and David tells him, "Dad! Dad! You forgot something!"

Rob tells David that he can pray for whatever it was that they "forgot" and David proceeds to say, "Dear God, thank you for my dad not being mad at me for eating that cake. Amen."

Leave it to David. :)
