Prayertime with Little Joe...

I feel a bit sacrilegious recording my son's prayers here for all the world to see. But they are just too good for me not to share! Here is the latest prayer from my darling son. Our family gathers in the living room each night to say our prayers together. We each take a turn saying our prayers. Please remember, all of my son's words are said very sincerely and very, very slowly--with many long pauses.

"Dear Heavenly Father,

Please bless that my mom can have her baby sooooon. Because I really want a brother or a sister. Only, please bless that the baby will have hair and not to be bald. Because if they are bald I will be all 'HUH??'
(said with great emphasis)  and think they are bald.

And please bless that the dog will stop biting me during prayers.
(to which I opened my eyes and grabbed the offending dog away and said 'No' to the dog when he then tried to nip me.) And please bless my Mom that she will not talk during my prayers because I am trying to talk to you Heavenly Father and she is interrupting me and not being reverent. And please help her to keep her eyes closed during my prayers."

I didn't hear much after that, I was too busy trying not to laugh. Afterall, I didn't want him to have to pray about that too. ;)
