We've been working on saying prayers with Hollie. For a majority of the time, our attempts are vastly unsuccessful. On rare occasion, however, our prayers go something like this...
"Hollie, let's say prayers," & she immediately folds her arms.
Me: Dear Heavenly Father
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, Habaaba Faazada, pause
Me: Thank thee for this day
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, jabber, day, pause
Me: Thank the for mama & dada
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, mama, dada, pause
Me: Thank thee for Jesus
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, Jesus, pause
No lie. Every single pull-your-hair-out parenting moment is worth it for times like these. I have never known greater joy than watching my sweet one year old talk to her Heavenly Father.
