K's foray into fasting

K's primary class learned about fasting on Sunday.  Since I picked her up from her class she's been telling me she is going to fast for Grandma.  I managed to talk her out of fasting on a school day because I don't want her struggling to concentrate (even more than she already does...) or be hungry at school.  So this morning she announces (I thought she forgot... I did) that since it isn't a school day she will be fasting for Grandma for breakfast and lunch.  I am skeptical but I don't want to discourage her.  Roy talked to her about maybe just starting with breakfast and seeing how it goes.  He also talked to her about praying for her fast so it isn't just going hungry.
K said our family prayer and prayed that Grandma would know she was fasting for her.  No sooner had the prayer ended and daddy begun eating his toast before K was at the kitchen asking for a piece of toast.  I told her I thought she was going to fast.  She said she wouldn't eat breakfast but maybe just a little bit of toast.  I think there may be a bit of misunderstanding here.
I smiled and got her the juice she wanted and started "rolled up pancakes" which is a family favorite.  I had a few cooked and K came into the kitchen.  "Maybe I could fast another day."
And thus ends K's first attempt at fasting.  I'm pleased she wants to learn about the gospel principle of fasting. She's such a good girl and so full of love for others.

K just walked in and asked me, "What's the name of Sunday?"
Me, "December 1."
K, "No! What's the name of Sunday?"
Me, ??  "What do you mean? I don't know what you mean."
K, "Like the name of Monday is Monday.  What's the name of Sunday?"
Me, "Uh, Sunday.  The name of Sunday is Sunday."
K, "No! We know the names of the other days like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday...."
Me, turn away and resume typing.  there's nothing more I can do here.
