Prior to every meal, we make it a habit to exemplify for our children a giving of thanks to God for not only the food He's blessed us with, but anything else that comes to mind. Typically that is friends, family, redemptive Grace, a heart for those less fortunate, etc. We always ask LA if he would like to pray as well. Ninety percent of the time he just jumps right in..."Jesus: Mama, Dada, Nana, Papa, Grandpa, Grandma..." and down the line. Every so often, he'll slip a "Froggy" in there. But, this morning, we had to laugh out loud when our precious toddler thanked the Almighty for "belly buttons." Indeed, son. Not sure how we would live without them. His prayer was then swiftly followed up with another bite of muffin and singing his ABC's.
