Numbers and Prayer

Lately Beck has had this major obsession with numbers. Which frankly I am kind of excited about because I hate math, so I am hoping that he caught Stephen's side of that. He likes to count and wants to know what numbers come next and says things like "seven in more than 6..." The other day he says to me:
Beck: what is six zero five?
Me: (kind of hearing him, but not answering...)
Beck: mom, listen to my words, what is six zero five?
Me: six hundred and five
Beck: count to six zero five mom
Me: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10... I made it up to 236 and he gave up and walked away....

Tonight as Beck was saying family prayer, he was doing a really great job thanking HF for lots of stuff, like school, and friends, and break dancing. Stephen was telling him: to bless that we can sleep in our beds.
Beck: Bless that we sleep in our beds, for a second
Stephen: all night long
Beck: bless that we can sleep in our beds, all night long, with mommy...

LOL, what can I say, my kids love me. :)
