Say a Little Prayer

My daughter and I say a little prayer while we’re lying together at bedtime.

Just a little diddle.

But I switched it up the other night to one we’ve never said before. And she started to repeat as I spoke.

Is she repeating? OMG she is! Where’s my phone? I need to video this… Crap I can’t do that.. is that wrong? Do you tape the Serenity Prayer?

WHOA! My child is a genius! She is going to fly through school!

Should we put her in kindergarten now? I mean she’s clearly got a high IQ.

I should tell Brian that we’re dealing with a child who is going to be a Dr or a scientist.

This will cost a lot of money. I’ll start saving now.

You have to do what you have to do for your child, especially when they’re as gifted as mine.

Me: God grant me

Her: God grant me

Me: the serenity

Her: the sernty

Me: to accept

Her: yah

Me: the things

Her: the things

Me: I cannot change

Her: my pants

Maybe I got a little carried away.

    At least she’s wearing pants which puts her a little closer to doctor or scientist than stripper.

      tonight she removed all of her pj’s, made a point of throwing them with purpose onto the floor, and then fell asleep.

    There is no room here for Jesus…unless he wants to sleep with the dog but he’s pretty comfortable in his bed.
    We’ve never prayed with Chunky.
    Should be interesting since he’s going to a Catholic school.
    Meh.
    He also likes clean pants.

      Jesus is in your heart.
      And your butt.
      He has to live there because there are horrible things that come out.
      You’re gross and you know it.

    Adorable! My boys say a prayer at bedtime also… that “Now I lay me down to sleep” prayer. Except they say it as fast as they can so it sounds like “Nowilaymedowntosleepipraythelordmysoultokeep…”
