Heavenly Father, Are You Really There?

Emmett offered to say the prayer before we ate dinner last night. As he started, he obviously got his little mind mixed up with a primary song because rather than saying, "Heavenly Father, we thank thee..." he said, "Heavenly Father, are you really there?" ...long pause, then "wait..." and he looked up at me, confused. I started to chuckle and reminded him that those words are the beginning phrase of the primary song, A Child's Prayer, and that he must be getting mixed up with that. He and Liliana started laughing hysterically. Every time we tried to start the prayer over again for the next five minutes, they'd begin cracking up again. At least I know he is paying attention during signing time at church, right?
