As anyone with kids probably knows, prayers are always a work in progress.  Nathan usually does a fairly good job, with a few reminders every once in a while.  But tonight as he was saying family prayers before bed, right in the middle of the prayer, he started talking gibberish.  Not just mumbling (which he sometimes does), but intelligible gibberish like "oh da la be fo ga ro me." He kept at it for quite a while.  Brig and I looked at each other and we both had a look on our faces like, "Great. Now he's being silly during prayers." He finished, and we both looked at him. Brig asked, "Was that a real prayer, Nathan?"  Nathan replied, "Yeah. It was in Spanish."

Side note: We have a Spanish group that meets with us at church and sometimes Brigham takes Nathan to the spanish baptisms.  He always has to explain why they are talking funny.

Emily has made similar attempts to speak Spanish. Glad to know my kid isn't the only one!
