Charlie's Prayer

Tonight it was just Charlie and me. I was making spaghetti for dinner, getting a pot of water boiling for the noodles. Charlie came in and said "Ohhhh EGGS, Mama??" (The child LOVES a hard boiled egg, he would eat them everyday if he could and if our noses could stand the ahhem..."after effects" of the eggs) I told him, I was making spaghetti. He looked disappointed, but said "ok mama" and went back to the living room to play. So, I decided while the sauce was simmering, I could boil some eggs for tonight and for breakfast this week.
Well, Charlie was so excited to see an egg on his plate. (I'm telling you he is the easiest child in the world to please.)
We sat down, held hands. I asked him if he would like to say the prayer tonight. This is how it went:

"Thank you Jesus,
Thank you Jesus and God
Thank you for yum-yums,
Thank you for baby Jack and Eggs"

Well, that about sums it up. A crying Mama at the dinner table, eggs, and the joy a child's prayer brings. What a sweet, sweet boy and a great, great God. 


  1. Aww you're such a sweet momma! What a kind little heart Charlie has.

  2. Baba loves her little man!! He is such a sweet, loving little boy. I can't wait to see how he teaches Jack all the wonderful things he has learned from a sweet, loving Mama & Papa!! P.S. Baba is crying too. He touches my heart in such amazing ways!!

  3. You are... quite possibly.... the most blessed woman in the world! A gorgeous, sweet little son, with a heart of gold... a wonderful husband and a precious little baby almost here to enter into your beautiful family. (I dont know how you are going to find time to do anything else today after you get through counting your blessings :) Love you, Shawn.
    p.s. hope you are keeping a journal of all the things little Charlie says. You will cherish it someday if you do.
