kids say the darndest things

Speaking of Jackson and his lack of pronouncing the “l” sound in any word… he has learned how to compensate nicely by inserting a “n” sound in place of the “l”s. For example:

Logan = Nog (we call him Log for short and Jackson calls him Nog)
Lizzie = Nissy
Eyelashes = eyenashes
Ladder = nadders
rolly pollies = rohnny ponies

This morning we had a family prayer just before the kids walked out the door to go to school. Lizzie (Nissy) really wanted to say it. Here’s how it went:

“…Thankful for this day. Bless the boys to have a good day at school. Bless us to have a fun day and watch TV like [pause] Tom & Jerry…. Amen”

What?! I was doing everything I could to hold in the laughter. She was dead serious in her request too. I guess it’s time to have another FHE on prayer, eh?

Someone should make a book out of the funny things kids pray for. I know I've heard some that I couldn't help but laugh during.

HA! Kennedy was asking to watch Tom & Jerry yesterday! She just sits there zoned out and then every once in a while she laughs. And then I laugh because it's hysterical.
