Sadie's Latest Prayer
Me: "Okay, now say your prayers." (Now that she knows quite a few I'm always interested to see what she'll say.)
Sadie: "In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti, Amen."
Me: "Wait, wait, wait. Where'd that come from?"
Sadie: "I said it because I love God."
Me: "But where did you learn it?"
Sadie: "The movie."
And then I remembered that I let her watch her Holy Baby DVD for a while about a week ago and at the moment her brain seems to be a little language sponge that absorbs everything.
For a few moments I thought she remembered how I used to pray the rosary in latin when I was nursing her to sleep during those long, long hours, when she was very tiny, which was why I was so surprised when she began to say them (but since she's been older I've been focusing on teaching her her prayers in English first).
I wonder what she's going to come up with next...
