The Tale of Mr. Tod-ish

Two-year-old T brought me a book. He had decided it was a book of prayers. So he opened it and announced, "Mom, we're praying." I closed my eyes and he prayed. After "Amen" was said he took two moments to tell me the book was purple. I smiled and said, "It's green, T."

We ended up praying 3-4 more times and then talking about the color of the book, again. Finally I took the book (Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Mr. Todd--meant for a much older audience) and said hopefully, "Would you like me to read it?"

I started reading. After about ten seconds T shouted, "AMEN, mom. AMEN."

So I guess "Amen" and "the end" sound alike to a 2-year-old. Good to know.
