Get the Hint, Pappa

While we aren't the most religious folks on the block, the kids do say their prayers at night. Some traditional, some Swedish, some subversive.

Last night, LittleMan was exhausted. Hubbie went to tuck him in and say bedtime prayers.

Usually, LittleMan will say the last word of every line since he is not yet two and can't say the whole prayer himself.

Last night, however, he tried to get Hubbie to speed the whole process up.

Hubbie: Angel of

LittleMan: God. Amen!

Hubbie: My guardian

LittleMan: dear. Amen!

Hubbie: To whom God's

LittleMan: love. Amen!

Hubbie: Entrust me

LittleMan: here. Amen!

I think you get the idea. By the time Hubbie got to the third and Swedish prayer, LittleMan just gave him the "you have got to be kidding me" look.

Apparently, Hubbie is slow on the uptake.

I think you should tell us about the subversive.

Dude, that sounds like me whenever I go to church.

Did I just type that out loud? Dang it.

That's too funny! Poor Hubby!

But seriously? You'll never regret saying those bedtime prayers with the kids.

Peace - D

Aren't husbands typically slow on the uptake, or is that just mine?
My kidlet is now practicing for her future Emmy by saying her prayers in different voices--some whiny, some deep. I don't know how to react to that, really...I mean, is she possessed? Do I reprimand her or what? I try to stifle the laughs until I get outside of her room.

Speaking for husbands, I don't know what the hell y'all are talking about.

@CajunVegan: I'll email you. ;)

@CMGD: Yes you did. As if the expression on your face weren't telltale enough.

@Momma: Hubbie thought it was extremely cute. I was the one sad that I missed it.

@Molly's Mom: Oh god. If my dd started doing that I don't know if I could keep a straight face. How absolutely hilarious.

@CiHV: Ah. The token dude. Hubbie thanks you for the support. Solidarity, brother!
