One night about 4- 6 months ago, right after family prayer, Matt complained that he couldn't hear the prayer. I had knelt at the love seat and he and was at the couch with Sam. Apparently I had my face too close to the cushions, something I try not to do for obvious reasons. (Have I mentioned I have a VERY sensitive nose?) And being across the room this made it hard for him to hear.
The next night Matt decides to say the pray, so we assume the position and he proceeds to shove his face into a pillow and he starts the prayer. Sam and I look up, surprised to see what's going on and we burst into laughter. Matt is obviously making fun of me for the night before. Sam totally gets this. We resumed control of ourselves and reverently had the prayer.
So tonight as we knelt for family prayer, Sam was in my face repeating over and over that I "play ball like a boy". Why? I don't know. Maybe he was mad at me because, thanks to the movie Sandlot, he thinks this is the worst insult ever. Matt couldn't hear him being a punk and asked him to say the prayer adding "Nice and Loud" to his request. So what does Sam do? He shoves his face into a pillow and yells the prayer. I couldn't hold it together. Matt was not happy.
