Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the bugs my brain not eat.

Saying Prayers is part of the nightly routine at our house, though some nights I conveniently forget…like when Gray’s is on.

BUT Inevitably I hear, “Mawwwwwwwmah don’t forget prayers!,” called down from somewhere far far away.
Heavy with guilt pains I drag my sorry butt up the stairs (at the next commercial break) with the intention of doing an abridged version and make it back before you can say McDummy. Then again you and I both know that wont happen, by the time I get back McSteamy and Little Gray will have gotten back together and broke up again….Dang it!

I stand at the bunk bed with one kid on the top and 3 kids and a dog crammed on the bottom, close my eyes, take a deep breath, and start.

Me: Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for this day and all our blessings, thank you for our health… Avery stop touching Sam’s nose! Sam get off your sister! Jesus please watch over us as we sleep…

Avery: (12) *fart nosies*

Sam:(5) and bless Wawa and Papa…and make Avery's farts stop stinking!

Maggie: (2) and may Wawa and Papa not get eat up by coyotes.

Me: What! Why would Maggie think her Grandparents are going to get eaten by coyotes…JONAH?

Jonah: (8) I didn’t tell her that…Sam did!

Sam: No I didn’t you did Jonah!

Avery: *fart nosies*


Jonah: Noooo I said that because Wawa and Papa’s cat got eaten by the coyotes that maybe their new puppy would get eaten by coyotes too…then SAM said maybe Wawa and Papa would get eaten by coyotes!

Me: Lord help me, and grant me patents.

Avery: *fart nosies*

Sam: Mama Pray I have a good day at school tomorrow and that I don’t hit Skyler….ummmm… and if I do hit Skyler that I not get another referral.

Me: and Wisdom Lord …Wisdom and strength.

Jonah: oh and mom Pray that bugs don’t crawl up my body and into my ear at night when I’m sleeping and lay eggs in my brain.


Maggie: Em en em

Sam: Its ahhhmen Maggie not M & M

Avery: *fart nosies*

Maggie: I want M&Ms!

I'm sure Gray's was lame anyway *sigh*

Oh, very precious!! Yes, you will miss these days. But it's clear that you really do enjoy them now. Thanks for sharing the lighter side of bedtime prayers!!

Oh, you crack me up!!! Of course, any post with the word FART in it (especially many times over) always gets a good chuckle out of me!

Oh Michelle! I've been waiting for a new post from you! This one is GREAT -- I read it out loud to the Scrapbook Cellar chicks while we were scrapbooking yesterday, and we all just laughed and laughed and laughed!
