Prayer time

I love listening to little kids pray. There is something so sweet and innocent about it that is just priceless. Of course, sometimes, they don't quite take the time to think through exactly what they're saying.

For the longest time, Ella's prayers (at bedtime, dinner, or pretty much anytime) consisted of "Heavenly Father, {Thank you} for this day, like go to church, Jesus Christ, Amen."

Rico, on the other hand, can be quite verbose, but is bordering on "vain repetitions." His typical prayer is as follows (though his pronunciation has improved in the last few days, and we now get "f"s instead of "w"s, this was too cute):

"Deeuh Wah-duh (Dear Father), Wake-oo (Thank you) Mommy, wake-oo Daddy, wake-oo Mommy, wake-oo Daddy, wake-oo Mommy, wake-oo Ella, wake-oo Eh-ee, wake-oo Mommy, wake-oo Daddy, wake-oo Geh-wine, wake-oo Mommy, wake-oo Daddy, wake-oo Mommy, wake-oo Jzhee-zhuh (Jesus), Jzhee-zhuh Kise, Amen.

It is nice to know that he's thankful for me. ;)
