"say Grace!"

Just like most Catholics, our family says Grace before meals. One tradition we have developed is also asking the Saint of the day to please pray for us and trying to read about that Saint during breakfast.

The most enthusiastic child by far in saying his prayers before eating is Baby Timmy. He usually (he didn't like getting his picture taken and kept turning around) folds his little hands so daintily and if he somehow decides that he wasn't paying strict attention he calls out, "Ay Ace!" (say Grace!) and I have to repeat it with him.

He hasn't started trying to make the Sign of the Cross, but I'm sure that soon he will begin with the same gorilla chest beating that Charlie used for so long.

We add the "May the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace" after Grace before meals. :) Mine all seem to smack their forhead several times instead of their chest when learning the Sign of the Cross. LOL

Baby X is always the first to pray, too. And he polices everyone - if someone's not praying he'll point them out!
