On mastering the art of prayer

Waleed: Mama, cookie!
Me: No cookies today.
Waleed: Mama, cookie please?
Me: No baby, no cookies.
Waleed: Mama, give me cookie please!!
Me: Look at the box, its empty. There are no cookies. I can't give you a cookie.

After a moment of silent consideration he turned and walked away. After a moment of persisting silence [which, when toddlers are involved, usually means trouble] I walked into the dining room and saw this:

Allah, cookies, please.
And when that didn't work, this:

Allah! Cookies?! Please?!
As much as I'm comfortably curled up on the couch, I must admit I'm beginning to foresee a trip to Publix in our very near future. So apparently, prayers work.

Little monkey! I am amazed by their ability to copy and mimic us. G mimics us too. A lot! Greatest form of flattery alright, leading (obviously) to cookies.

Thanks Leigh Ann, H, and Mystic!

Mina, yes, they for better or WORSE mimic is indeed-- it does lead to a lot of self-reflection when they imitate the less desirable qualities :)

It's the shawl. How do you resist a baby in a shawl praying for cookies? :)

Aisha said...

Boy or girl, a baby in a shawl cannot be resisted, agreed!!! :)

The funniest thing is K went and bought a box of two dozen cookies. And I did too. So now, we have more cookies than we can possibly manage. LOL. Waleed's prayers really did come through :) Thanks Ayesha Khala :)

Mash Allah! I love how he has to wear a scarf! My son as well. He MUST wear a jilbaz and will toss the cap!

aisha, this post is so flipping cute, my whole family was here last week and i had to show it to my sister who also thought it was ADORABLE. she commented on what a cutie waleed is and how beautiful you are and said how cool it is that i get to make these connections with people from all around the country (and the world) who i don't actually know in real life. she is so right and you are one of my favorites :)
