Frequently, C. and I try to eat dinner together before we put the girls down for bed. Because the girls eat around 5:30, they usually don't join us or I give them a snacky dessert while we eat to keep them occupied and happy.
Tonight they each had a bowl of marshmallows and were standing at the ottoman to eat them. C. and I blessed our food and began to eat. We then heard A.E. begin to sing, "Jesus Loves Me". Then, she bowed her head over her bowl and began to bless her marshmallows.
H.J. took this opportunity to take some of A.E.'s marshmallows. Halt prayer.
A.E. began again, "Dear God, thank you for this day..."
"Dear God, thank you for..."
So much for that.
