Ever since Franny's jungle birthday party, she's been mentioning various animals in her bedtime prayers. The first time she asked Heavenly Father to bless the lion, tiger, hippo, and rhinoceros, I had to hunch over to stifle my laughter. Since then, we've tried to redirect her a little to remember the actual people in her life that we think she might like to pray for. Here's how her prayer went tonight:
Franny: "Dear Heavenly Father, please bless the lion, the tiger-"
Me: "Please bless Grandpa..."
Franny: "And Annie, and Maggie, and Julia.... and Lisa, and Bart, and Homer, and Marge-"
Me, finally (it took the whole Simpson family before I could regain control and keep myself from laughing out loud): "and Daddy..."
Franny: "Bless Tiffany, and Robin, and Maggie, and Nora.... and Megan.... 'rice (which is how Franny closes the prayer in the Savior's name), Amen."
