Blessing the Bread

Blessing the Bread February 24, 2014

Our two year old has a new tactic to prolong dinner time.  It is particularly effective.  He’ll pick up a roll or a large bite of food in both of his hands, whisper a few words over it, and then slowly raise it over his head.  Remind you of anything?  Perhaps a particular moment at Mass?

Once the bite/bread roll returns to his plate, I ask our son, “are you going to take a bite, Buddy?”

“No, no, Mommy,” he’ll reply, “that bite is for Jesus.”


He has me figured out!
