Don't Think This One's Going to Save You

Max was trying to convince me to give him a snack this morning. This is his regular rhythm lately: eat breakfast...2 or 3 times, and then ask for a snack.

He asked, "Mama, can I have a nack when we get home?"

"You can finish that banana muffin from breakfast," I told him remembering I had left it on the table in the mad dash to school.

"No...I don't want the nana muffin. I want a nack," he responded rather matter-of-factly.

"Well, finish the muffin and I'll get you a snack."

There was a brief pause after which I heard him pray, "Dear Jesus, help me not to have to eat my nana muffin today. Amen. Father, Son, Holy Pirit. Amen."

My 5 yo son wants to eat all the time. It is wearing me out. And he has not tried cute prayers to win me over. ;)

Oh my goodness! How could you not let his prayer come true? That's so sweet!
