Throwing Mama a bone...

Just before bedtime prayers, DH asks the kids if they have any requests.

Boop's hand shoots up, "I want to pray that I grow up just a leeeetle bit faster."

"Oh, no why would you want to do that?"

"So I can get married sooner!"

"Well," I say, "Mama really likes you being just this age and I'd be so sad if you got bigger any sooner than you did."

"Ok, time for prayers," DH says.

"Can I pray when you're done?" Boop asks - because of course this is her way of making sure she gets to pray that she gets bigger and gets married next week.

"Sure," DH says.

So, when he's done, she says, "Dear Jesus, I pray that I grow up just the right amount because I want to get bigger, but Mama would be so sad if I got big all at once. Amen."

Thanks, Boop. :)

Oohmigoodness, my children do and say stuff like that too. It's like a competition to make mommy crazy by growing up too fast. My eldest is taller than me now - her daddy's a skyscraper - and she just loooves looking down on Mom!
