Joci's Prayer Tonight

I have to jot this down before I forget.

Every night before bed, we coax Joci to say her prayers. Some nights take more coaxing than others. She has a memorized routine that she cruises through. Occasionally she will throw something in original and I love getting glimpses into her brain. Tonight's prayer was precious.

A couple things first. She helped me make chocolate chip cookies tonight. She ate about 1/4 of the dough and kept snagging cookies, even after we brushed teeth. She stole her daddy's cookie too - he didn't have the heart to tell her no.

During bath time today, I told her that her cousin Haiden would get a new baby in his house soon (my sis-in-law is due in the next few weeks). She threw a tantrum and said she didn't want a new baby to come to Haiden's house, she wanted a new baby to come to her house.

Okay, on to the prayer.

I coaxed her through the first few lines.

Me: Bless Grandma because she had surgery
Joci: Bless Grandma because of Audrey. And Bless Camden. (Audrey and Camden are siblings and Joci's cousins). Bless I eat cookies. Bless I get a baby at my house....Amen.

Awww! She will get a cookie for breakfast and hopefully she won't be waiting too long on that baby.

Isn't that sweet? How is your mom? Hopefully, she won't steal Haiden's baby because he is really getting ready for it as I am told. She might be such a great help to you when she gets a baby in her home. What a cute prayer.
