Oh, thank heaven for my DVR which allowed me to pause live TV indefinitely and
write witty retorts on Facebook surf the net. At the same time, my two four-year girls across the hall raised hell for what seemed like effen eternity continued to chit chat prior to Mr. Sandman's arrival.
Just as I was about to
open a heapin' can of whoop-ass ask them politely for the third time to please please go to sleep, I heard them recite a passage oh so familiar, yet not something that I hear everyday....The Lord's Prayer. I couldn't believe it. We hadn't attended church in months (long story). So, how did they know it?
I had an idea so I made my way to their room and asked "How do you two know the Lord's Prayer?" Vivi wouldn't tell me...no surprise, but Julia said "I know..I'll tell you.....St. Anna's." Hmmm, yeah that's what I thought.
St. Anna's is a Greek Orthodox Church where the triplets attend preschool. When Mom MD and I were searching
for a hard nosed toddler military school for a new preschool we asked the director "Does this school have a religious component?" - not that there is anything wrong with this...we just were curious. I believe she said "just a little."
I suppose the fact that she was planning to do the "Nativity Scene" at the annual Christmas program the month after the triplets started should have been our first clue. In any regard, how special to hear your little girls say the Lord's Prayer....I felt so blessed that I had to share.......
