Toddlers and Gratitude

Overheard tonight at bedtime:

K: Thank you God for . . .
W: Burps
K: Ok. Yes. Well, Thank you for burps and thank you for. . .
W: Cars!
K: Yes cars are very helpful to take us places.
W: Thank you for Elmo!
K: What about Mama and Abu?
W: Oh yeah! Thank you for Mama. Thank you for Abu.

Comforting to know that after burps, cars, and Elmo— and with a touch of prodding– we make it in our son’s prayers for the things he’s thankful for.
