This occurred a few months ago:

“Honey, do you remember when we were talking about grace this week? Although you should eat all your food, I am going to show you some grace tonight. Even though you don’t deserve it, I am going to eat the rest of your chili for you.”  How nice of me.  I proceeded to spoon the rest of her chili into my bowl.  Happy tummy!

Without skipping a beat, my inquisitive daughter asked, Dad . . . You got any grace for my broccoli?
