Yesterday morning I gave John-Paul and Andrew some money to go to the snack counter after school since Phil would be a little later than usual picking them up. The following conversation then took place between John-Paul, Phil and I:
John-Paul: Daddy, can I buy Gatorade with my money?
Phil: (passing the buck) Colleen, can John-Paul buy gatorade with his money?
Me: No, buy something healthy. (I don't believe in drinking gatorade unless you're running a marathon or something similar)
Then, a few minutes later in the car on the way to school, as Phil and the boys were finishing up their morning prayers:
Phil: John-Paul, what do you want to pray for today?
John-Paul: I want to pray for all the kids whose mommies won't let them get gatorade.
Phil: That's not very nice, John-Paul.
John-Paul: No, not for me, for all the other kids.
