You know your child has been paying attention at mass when...

Our oldest walked into the bedroom this morning bearing a nursing pad (for those of you who don't have to deal with these things, it's a round, white, absorbent pad about three inches in diameter designed to keep mommy from leaking through her shirt). She held it up, looked solemnly around, and intoned: "This is Jesus. All of you bow your heads when I hold up Jesus."

Paul, just this guy, you know? said...

My 4-year-old used to do that, mainly when he was 2. He'd be sitting in a high-chair at McDonald's, hold up a chicken nugget in both hands and in solemn baby-talk announce, "This my body, give up you". Then he'd set it down, and bow. Then he'd do the same with his cup.

I take it you guys go to Mass at the Jesuit seminary down the road, eh?

Cute story. Jesus and Mary are smiling for sure.
