As mothers are wont to do, let me also brag about my kids' achievements :) Be warned, these are the spiritual ones.
- Ash can recite Psalm 23 in Malayalam - something his grandparents taught him. Grandparents are incredible - we never managed to teach him anything so far! And I dont think I byhearted "The Lord is my Shepherd..." until I was seven or eight and old enough to read the Bible's tough Malayalam on my own ( And I couldnt understand the 2nd line "Enikku muttundakayilla = I shall not want" in Malayalam. Muttu in simple Malayalam means knees and I didnt know why I wouldnt need my knee for the Lord's sake.)
- He tops it with "The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit" in Malayalam and makes a sign of the cross thrice.
- He refuses to go to sleep until he says it at night. And he insists on having the Bible open in front of him - as if he can read.
- Mira's impromptu prayers include "Please cure Achacha's itching" and "Please take care of the baby in T aunty's womb".
