Gratituesday: Kid-Speak (updated)

John-Paul: Mommy - you know those 'things' you have that feed babies? Well, Maggie is starting to grow some so that she can feed babies when she gets to be a lady.

(Phil and I try not to laugh, but the thought of our 2 year old daughter having "bosoms" is too much to handle right now!)

Maggie walks over and requests to watch "Oven and the Chicky Munts"

(Alvin and the Chipmunks).

In the morning on the way to school, the kids and I say our morning prayers and then they each get to pray for something, and be thankful for something.

It makes my heart melt when Andrew says he is thankful for "Jesus dying on the Cross" and Eamon is thankful for "Baby Layla being in Heaven". And Maggie always says the same thing every day: I want to pray for Baby Jesus, Baby Mary, our family!

Just this morning - Eamon was so excited to go to school to see the "Monster Ants".
Then the older boys informed me he was talking about one of 6 Monstrances blessed by the Pope that are traveling around the US! Very cool!

One more funny from Eamon
(he is our resident 3 year old clown at the moment):
I was picking out his clothes last night (to wear today) and he asked to wear his white sweater vest. I said no because today is gym day and that was too fancy. He complained that his friend Shawn wears them all the time to school. And I said, Eamon, you wore that vest for Easter, it's for special holidays. And he came right back with "But it's still the Easter season!" He's 100% right, and I'm 100% grateful for sending him to a great Catholic school :) But still, no sweater vests on gym day!

What are you thankful for today?
