Asking what prayers our little ones know… I have to share a funny story.
The toilet at my mom’s house requires you to hold the handle down when flushing until it has all the way flushed otherwise it just stops mid-stream. Anyhow, a couple of weeks ago, I told my DD to say a Hail Mary while she held the handle down until she was done with the whole Hail Mary. I thought this would make sure the toilet would flush all the way. Well, when we went back to my mom’s the next week, after taking DD to the potty (she’s 2 and a half), I went to turn the water on to wash our hands and DD said, “Mom, we forgot to say the prayer for the toilet!” hee hee – I could not stop laughing and my poor daughter couldn’t figure out why it was so funny to do what mom told her….

BTW, she knows her Hail Mary, Meal Blessing, Sign of the Cross but sometimes gets it backwards, and oddly enough the entire Angelus just because that’s what we say every day before nap time. I haven’t really done the rosary in front of her on a regular basis so sadly, I don’t think she knows the Our Father – guess I should work on that one…
