My Mini Me

In her prayer tonight...

"Please bless that no one will get head lice. Please bless that no one will get pink eye. Please bless that no one will get sick at all. Please bless that our house won't catch on fire. Please bless that I won't hear any scary noises so I can't go to sleep. Please bless that I'll only have good dreams, not BAD dreams, only GOOD dreams..."

You think this is bad? You should have heard her prayer the night she first learned about tornadoes.

It's so fun to hear the things kids say and I love her little prayer. I'm looking forward to Katie saying all sorts of cute, random things. I still like when you told us about when Macy saw the dog in the field with the cows and she said "That's the littlest cow I've ever seen." SO CUTE!

That girl's got faith!

Oh man, she sounds JUST like our Kaylee!! And that kid is a major Prayer Warrior.. On more than one occasion, she's literally prayed the stomach flu away because she was so terrified to throw up!

Lisa said...

Oh how cute is that! At least she's got everything covered...I would say that you'll be the healthiest and safest family on the block!

Alicia said...

Mike- I can honestly say, been there, done that!

That's awesome. Nothing like seeing all of your weaknesses mirrored back at you from the face of your child. You'll love this... Today as we're getting out of the car to go into the house Macy says, "Are you SURE your pink eye is all gone, cause I don't want to get it." And Kenzie says, "I'm sure. See this eye? It used to be all red and puffy and gross, but my mom puts in these awful eye drops and made me stay home and take the GROSSEST pink medicine and wouldn't let me go back to school until it was all gone! But if it makes you feel better, you can just wash your hands a lot. That's what my mom keeps doing." I just had to smile at this little exchange. It was like the two of us, only littler. :-)

Aw, Shayla, that just made my day. Mine me and Mine You.

That is hysterical! Hopefully Aubrey will pray for health and safety too, right now I would just be happy if she stopped refusing to fold her arms.

Aubrey said...

That is funny! Brought me back to all my fears as a kid....I had my Mom call the school everyday for weeks to see if they were having a fire drill that day. Talk about terrifying!!!

Oh, man, that was hilarious. I literally laughed out loud on that one. What a cute girl.

That is great, I wonder what Kaylee does that is exactly like me.....maybe when she goes around putting all of my home decorations at right angles to each other....should I worry about that one?

I love it! She sounds a lot like Hannah. When she was 3, she watched Mulan one day and was completely freaked out by the part where the Huns burned the village. She then prayed (every night) for 3 years for our house to not catch on fire.

Heather said...

That's awesome, you guys must spend a lot of time praying. ;)

Amy said...

So funny! Emily prays every night for the "good dreams and no bad dreams"

I just wanna know who has head lice and pink eye. Gotta steer clear of those kids.
