Every night we say prayers and we all repeat it together. We've recently started adding a little personal prayer where each person talks to God followed by Amen. Heather starts, then me, then Kyle and last is Owen. In our little 1-time-is-a-ritual family, that's how we do it now - every night. For this little personal prayer at the end all kinds of things come out: "Thank you for school, I love it", "I love my Mommy and Papi", "Thank you Dear God, it was a beautiful day."
Tonight, after Owen rambled and said his prayer, he also said the following, completely unprompted. In fact, we've never used this phrase with him and are pretty sure no body else around here has either.
"...and please have the baby come out, because it's hurting in my heart. Amen"
