It is always encouraging to realize that your littlest ones are listening during Mass, even if they appear to be more interested in blowing things up with their hands.
Case in point. As we were walking out of church today, Mr 7 yo said the following:
"Mom, you know in the gospel when it said, 'ask and you will receive and knock and it shall be opened'? Well, I was thinking that after school, one person from each bedroom could go into the bedroom and shut the door. The rest of us could go to the door and knock and they would open it for us and we would ask for something from the room and they would give it to us. You know, just like in the gospel!"
If it were only that simple, son :)
