Kids Say the Darnest Things...

My little L is the chattiest 3-year-old boy I've ever met. He has been quite verbose for a LONG time which, at his age & for his gender, is pretty unusual. It is no surprise, therefore, that he & I have had some great discussions. He cracks me up on a daily basis.

For example, today while perusing the 99 Cent Only store, he says:

L: "Hey Mom, where do stomachs come from?"

Me: "Hmmmmmmm (doing some quick thinking here), they come from Heavenly Father buddy."

L: "Oh, (then he folds his arms & bows his head right there in the shopping cart & says:) Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for my stomach."

Now that's gratitude for ya. He is also always the one to shout out..."we forgot to say the prayer!!" before EVERY ANY location. We have had lots of blessings on the food in all kinds of places....McDonalds, parks, friends name it.

Thanks for being an example to me little man & for the record, I'm grateful for my stomach too. :)
