Prayers

For six months last year, my son prayed every night “Please, God, make the baby a boy”. We’d tell him that the baby was already a boy or a girl and God wasn’t going to change it. My son cried when Charlee was born a girl. 🙂 

We’ve been out of practice on prayers for the past couple of months. It’s hard when there is a demanding baby in the mix and many of our prayers were just thrown heaven ward in a rush. Jack has been pretty adamant about not praying at all. The last few nights we have been giving our thanks before dinner. Chad led us in prayer tonight and at his “Amen”, Jack piped up “Wait! Wait! I have something to say.”

We bowed our heads again and Jack began “Dear Lord, thank you for this food. Thank you for this day. And, Lord, please make the next baby……..long dramatic pause…… really cute”.

There was laughter around the table and my husband looks heaven ward and says “I’m sorry, Lord”, then looked at my son and said “Where in the heck did that come from????”

Michelle said “I don’t think mommy and daddy want six kids”. 

Jack’s rebuttal was “Well, you can move soon”. 

LOL. At least he’s okay with having little sisters now ? 😉
