Humans and Cowboys
Kids say the darnedest things! We've all heard that before. And how true it is. Last night we were winding down and like each night we asked the boys to pray before bed. Bryce said his normal prayer (which is the God our Father song, adding his own special touch of "help us have a goodnight sleep, help us not have bad dreams" ) and then Ethan said his. We have really encouraged the boys to pray for specific things and not just a singing routine, which they have both done very well. However, last nights prayer from Ethan got a chuckle out of all of us. He said "Dear Jesus, thank you for this beautiful day and thank you for humans." We said amen and just smiled. I looked at Ethan and told him that it was time we tell everyone the truth, that me and him are aliens. He looked a little scared and kept asking me if I was "for real." We had another laugh and a great night of sleep with no bad dreams. Thank you God for humans. Then today Bryce came in from outside and said something smart to Ethan then he said "listen here cowboy!" My boys constantly make me laugh with their sayings, words and actions. They are hilarious and once they realize it, they keep going and going like the energizer bunny.
