Prayers

One of my favorite parts of our day is when when we put Hank down to bed (...not just because it means we get to enjoy a little peace and quiet) and say our prayers together. Aaron and I alternate saying the family prayer and afterwards Hank insists that he gets a turn to say his own prayer, too. Aaron helps Hank by prompting him with the phrase, "we thank thee for ---" and then Hank fills in the blank. This is Hank's prayer:

"HEAVENLY (father),
(We thank thee for this)....DAY....MAMA....DADA...NANA...PAPA....BABY
Then, depending on the night, Hank will also express gratitude for his home, his bed, his Teddy, his baba and binki, his buddies, church, nursery, and Jesus.
JESUS. AMEN!!

That is so sweet. I love hearing children pray, their prayers are always so basic but so honest and thoughtful.
