Part of our kids' night-time prayer routine is an extensive Litany of the Saints, concluding with the kids' patron saints (done in pairs) followed by "Pray for Us" (or the Latin "Orate Pro Nobis" which they like to randomly interchange). The other night Terri was leading prayers and went through the Patron Saints. After she named Kate's two patron saints and everyone responded "Pray for Us", Kate started screaming "No!" in a very loud voice. This resulted in universal giggles from the other children who are, at this point, neither surprised nor shocked at her occasional outbursts. The laughs continued and eventually increased as Kate's face slowly changed from anger to a quirky smile. "They already did me," she very sweetly explained.
