I simply cannot forget this one

Christopher sat down at the table with the younger ones (Thomas and Marie) to eat lunch while I continued to homeschool the older kids in the other room. He shouted out, "But Mommy, we didn't pray for the food!"

"Christopher, why don't you pray for the table, and then you can start eating."

And so he did.

Everyone bowed their heads and made the sign of the Cross, and then Christopher began:

"Father, thank you for the wheat, which was used to make this bread. And thank you for.... um....

C: Hey Mommy!
M: What?

C: What did God do to make the pepperoni?
M: Well, He gave us the animals, I suppose...

C: OK, thank You, God, for the animals that we used to make the pepperoni and... well... well... we don't know what You did to make the cheese, but we'll understand it all in Heaven one day. Amen"

Yes, cheese is quite the mystery isn't it? Maybe you should get the book "Home Cheese Making" and take the mystery out of it for him. :)
