Kids really do listen!!!

You never realize just how much your kids listen until you see and hear them. The other day the kids and I went to pick up Chris from work. It was a TERRIBLY HOT day and I have been avoiding turning on the stove at all costs. Well, the kids asked if we could take them to McDonalds for supper and we gave them the typical parent answer "We'll see!" As Chris and I are in the front seat of the car deciding whether we should take them or not, we hear a little voice whispering in the back seat, saying "Dear God, please please please let mommy and daddy take us to McDonalds for supper. We have been really good today and its really hot outside and mommy shouldn't have to cook. I promise that I'll be good, just please let us go to McDonalds for supper." Chris and I had tears rolling from our eyes we were laughing so hard. We have always taught our children that we could pray to God for anything and that if there are things we want or need that we should pray for that too and God will listen to you! I just never thot they heard us!
